Un canard à New York


Book Description

This vibrant, engaging assortment offers children an entertaining introduction to the French language. From stories of friendship, family, discovery, and self-esteem to silly, snappy songs of one-of-a-kind barnyard animals, lullabies, and segments of classical music, children tune in to a variety of musical styles and multicultural experiences. The accompanying CDs provide children an opportunity to hear the pronunciation of the words and sing along as they learn the language. A little duck from the Prairies has a big dream—making it to New York City and doing his ducky dance on Broadway. It’s an adventurous journey that appears bound for failure until he meets up with a truck driver named Big Betty who gives him that little nudge he needs to tackle the Big Apple. The 12 songs in the accompanying CD include the story’s theme song and “Limace–Opéra” (Slug Opera), “Au bal des alligators” (Alligator Ball), and “Couac, couac, couac” (Quack, Quack, Quack).
