Rating: (1-5, 5 is a starred review) 4
Genre: Picture book
What did you like about the book? This is a book about ducks. There is the narrative of the little girl living in the city and seeing the ducks, and there is also an information box on each page that explains facts about the ducks. For very young children, the story would be enough, and for older children, the facts about the ducks would be fascinating. Who knew that the female ducks are the ones that make all the noise, and in order to hear the males, you have to be very close to them! The book is a large picture book and it is packed with information about ducks.
