10 Little Rubber Ducks Board Book
Get swept away on a high-seas voyage of discovery with 10 little rubber ducks as they float to every part of the world. The story opens at a factory where assembly-line workers are painting details onto bright yellow rubber ducks. The toys are then loaded onto a freighter destined for faraway countries. During a storm, 10 rubber ducks fall into the sea. Each one floats in a different direction - west, east, north, south, left, right, up, down, this way, and that way - and encounters a different animal (a dolphin, seal, polar bear, etc.). The 10th one meets a mother duck with her offspring and bobs along with them to their nest. The ducks all bid "Good night" to one another with a "Quack," while the newcomer says "Squeak!" (Children can press the page to hear a squeak.)
A yellow plastic duck narrates the story of his adventures on the ocean after a ship's crate loaded with bathtub toys is washed overboard. Along with some of the other toys, the duck is swallowed by a shark, then spit out even though he and his companions are "guaranteed nontoxic." Gradually, the toys are separated by wind and wave, and the duck journeys alone for months. Eventually, he is picked up by a schoolboy and logged in by scientists. An author's note explains the real-life incident that gave rise to the story as well as the science connection. In the throes of the adventure, Ducky wishes he could do more than just float, that he could swim, or fly. But, by journey's end, safe and with a child of his own, the contented toy concludes, "How wondrous it is to be able to float!"
No More Diapers for Ducky!
No more diapers for me! Thatís what toddlers will proudly proclaim after they hear this appealing tale of a lovable duck who takes the big step. When Piggy canít come out to play because heís busy sitting on the potty, Ducky realizes itís time to grow up, too.
The Uglified Ducky
You may think you know the story of The Ugly Duckling, but think again. Every full moon in the Northern Piney Woods, the animals gather to hear Maynard Moose tell his Mother Moose Tales in "old Moose Speech." The glossary begins with a tongue-in-cheek "Parental Warning" about "moose grammar, spelling, and usage, all of which have been known to scrumble up the human brain!" Poor little moose wanders away and falls asleep in a nest with five ducky eggs. "Boy, I hope the other ones will turn out better" is Mommy Ducky's reaction when she sees him. The story line echoes Andersen's "The Ugly Duckling" as the "uglified ducky" tries his best to waddle, quack, and swim, with humorous results. Predictably, all ends well, and Maynard Moose closes his story with a twist on the usual moral: If you don't fit into your "famblyÖthat does not mean you are uglifiedÖ. It just means you have not found out what you really are yet.
clever take on the age-old optical illusion: is it a duck or a rabbit? Depends on how you look at it. Readers will find more than just Amy Krouse Rosenthal's signature sense of humor here--there is also a subtle lesson for kids who don't know when to let go of an argument. This is a smart, simple story that will make readers of all ages eager to take a side, Duck! Rabbit! makes it easy to agree on at least one thing: reading it again!

One Duck Stuck: A Mucky Ducky Counting Book
"Splish, clomp, pleep, plop, plunk, sloosh, slosh, slink, zing." Who can resist a read-aloud featuring sounds like these? When, "Down by the marsh, by the sleepy, slimy marsh, one duck gets stuck in the muck," who comes to the rescue? Two fish, splishing, for starters. Then three moose clomping, four crickets pleeping, and so on. Still, "No luck. Still stuck." It takes a whole lot of teamwork to get this particular stuck duck unstuck from the muck, but this cheerful bunch is definitely up to the task. From one duck to 10 dragonflies, the muddy fun never stops in Phyllis Root's chunky little board book. Young readers will giggle their way through the numbers, and by the time the duck's foot is released with a "Spluck!" counting will be a cinch.
Adventures of Ducky and Pippy
Little Ducky does not have it easy. He is last to hatch, last to peep, and last to learn to swim. He is afraid of water and heights, and on top of that, he stutters! His brothers make fun of him, and he soon becomes very discouraged. His sister Daisy steps in to help him. She knows just how kind and smart he is. But when they discover that Ducky needs glasses, even Daisyís not so sure the other ducklings will ever accept him. With his new goggle-glasses, Ducky quickly learns how to land and starts flying with the rest of the ducklings. Soon itís time to migrate and Duckyís worst fear comes true. He gets lost in migration! Ducky sets off to find his family, but instead, he meets Pippy, an adventurous young squirrel, who offers to take Ducky home with him. Lady, a feisty ladybug, tags along.
