Little Quack’s brothers and sisters splish, splash, and splosh their way into the pond behind their mama. Will he join his family? Count along and find out in the new Classic Board Book edition of this popular story.
Little Quack by Lauren Thompson & Derek Anderson (illus.) is the first book Ms. Thompson ever wrote about Little Quack and his brothers and sisters. There are currently four picture books and four separate board books with Little Quack in them. I really wish there were more because the whole series is adorable.
This book finds Little Quack and his siblings (Widdle, Waddle, Piddle, and Puddle) are learning how to swim in the pond they live next to for the first time. All of them are fearful at first, but one by one they gather their courage and join their Mama in the pond. It’s a great book for talking about what children might be afraid of and seeing how they can overcome their fears like Little Quack.
In all of the books, the pictures are vivid and beautiful. The prose is well-written and engaging. It’s a great series in general. There isn’t a single book that I wouldn’t recommend to friends, family, and library patrons.
