The Little Duckling Who Wouldn't Get Wet

Fun animals help a little duckling find a strong sense of self in a perfect preschool read-aloud made with irresistible cut-paper art. The little duckling wouldn't get wet. No. Not yet. The little duckling isn't ready, and no matter how many animal friends come along to try to push, only the duckling can decide when the time is right. Introducing the little duckling's story will encourage children to consider their own needs and help them gain the confidence to do things in their own time. Author Gek Tessaro's colorful art has a cut-paper style reminiscent of Eric Carle. Playful language in a patterned text interacts with the visuals to provide an engaging experience for any young reader, parent, teacher, or librarian.
