A Very Ducky Post


What is it about ducks that make them such compelling characters for children's picture books? Have you ever truly noticed how many books about ducks there are?

Here are some of our favorites.
Have You Seen My Duckling? by Nancy Tafuri

Duck on a Bike by David Shannon

Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey

Duck and Goose by Tad Hills

Duck Soup by Jackie Urbanovic

10 Little Rubber Ducks by Eric Carle

Come Along, Daisy by Jane Simmons

Just Ducky by Kathy Mallat

A ducky post wouldn't be complete without a mention of our favorite ducky songs:

There's a little white duck, swimming in the water...
Three little ducks went out to play, over the hill and far away...
Rubber ducky, you're the one, you make bathtime so much fun...

Have you stopped to feed the ducks lately?

yeah, what is it with ducks? They do make irresistable book characters. BTW, that was Leah's first word, "duck.". Seriously.
