Little Quack is an endearing story where everything is just ducky. Little Quack and his four siblings Widdle, Waddle, Piddle, and Puddle are facing that daunting task every young duck fears…leaving the nest and swimming for the first time. Mama duck is very patient with her frightened, and also very brave, ducklings as she coaxes them into the pond.
The illustrations are soft and luminous and the ducklings themselves are adorably drawn. Children will be enchanted by the unique duckling style as well as by the humorous faces Little Duck makes as his turn to jump in the pond gets closer and closer. As an extra bonus there is a “duckling counter” at the bottom of the page that visually adds up the ducklings that have now jumped into the pond. A quality book for both one on one sharing as well as storytime, this book lends itself to a flannel board application.
