I’m so excited!
We have geese on our pond and ducks too, and the Little Darling just loves to see them when he goes down there to fish…of course, they don’t usually hang around once he’s down there, but he loves to see them. He was really excited earlier this year because Pops gave him his very own duck and goose calls -woohoo – was he ever excited – I was hoping for a pair of earplugs myself, but never mind…
Nicola Davies has written a super book called Just Ducks! and just like everything she does it is fabulous. You might recall that we talked about another book that we like: Outside Your Window earlier, here. It is easy to see her love for nature and her training as a zoologist come shining through in her books.
Just Ducks! is a wonderful introduction for children into the life cycle of a duck, written sympathetically, with just enough information about ducks and drakes, moms and their chicks and the vicissitudes of bringing up babies, wherever you are.
Paired with the gorgeous watercolor illustrations of Salvatore Rubbino, this book is a must have for the nature loving child.
