Product description

“How goes the work?” called the farmer. The duck answered, “Quack!” While the poor duck works, the lazy farmer lies in bed… until one day the farm animals decide to strike back! This classic farmyard favourite addresses themes of bullying, fairness and sharing, and is full of animal actions and farmyard noises to make.

Use this favourite story at Key Stage 1 as:
  • a story with a familiar setting
  • a story with patterned language
  • a story by a significant children’s author.

Also available: Read and Respond activities to accompany Farmer Duck.

“Marvellously expressive pictures and a satisfying text make this the outstanding picture book of the year.” The Sunday Times

    My favourite bit in the book is when the animals get there own back on the farmer. I would recommend this book to 3-5 year olds for their parents to read it to them.

    when reading this in class when i was small i felt really sorry for the little duck having to work all day long! The author has clearly showed the readers what sharing is about and hardwork.
