Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Sue Preissner
In this lovely springtime story, Danny observes a duck nesting near the school playground. Rather than tell about it, he draws pictures to share with the class. One day, he draws an empty nest and begins to cry. The teacher then takes the class to the nearby pond to watch and count the baby ducks. This is a great read-aloud story, with terrific illustrations.
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-K-A tender little tale about a youngster who watches a wild duck make a nest in the brush at the edge of the schoolyard. ``No one saw her come...except Danny.'' He visits the spot regularly and notes the progress of the eggs, recording his observations in art class. His pleasure is jolted when the ducks hatch and seem to disappear. At last he confides his secret to his teacher, who leads him to the pond where the ducklings are happily paddling. Romantic, soft, pastel-hued illustrations depict chubby, dimpled, smiling children who are sweetly fetching even when in tears. Youngsters will love this title; it wraps up the scientific method in a warm fuzzy.-Ruth Semrau, formerly at Lovejoy School, Allen, TX
