10 Little Rubber Ducks

Eric Carle’s cute new book 10 Little Rubber Ducks was inspired by a 1992 incident when a shipment of 29,000 rubber bathtub toys, including ducks, beavers, turtles and frogs, fell overboard from a container ship. Carle takes this concept and narrows it down to ten rubber ducks and what happens to them when they get lost at sea.

It of course has Carle's great illustrations and a "surprise" at the end, which is of course my two-year-old's favorite part.
