Chasing Watermelons by Kevin White

Duck wants to have a watermelon feast, but when they begin to roll, the chase is on! Duck invites his friends to join in with, "If you help, you can have some too". 
A delightful story about friendship and perseverance that ends in the most surprising place of all.

My Thoughts:

Chasing Watermelons is an adorable children’s book. The book teaches about the value of hard work. It also teaches about sharing. Duck's friends helped him catch the watermelons. As a reward for helping, Duck shared the watermelon with all of them. Hard work pays off. Some of the ideas and illustrations were a little silly. For example, the animals controlling the hot air balloon. However, I think the silliness will make the children like it even more. My favorite illustration is the one of all five animals on a single bike. It made me chuckle. This is a great book for parents and children to read together. 

I give Chasing Watermelons: 4/5.
