Children's LiteratureFine-feathered friends romp through the wintry chill in Duck Skates. In rollicking verse, author Lynne Berry follows the snowy antics of five ducklings as they pull on boots, stumble across the ice, toss snowballs and finally, back indoors, sip cocoa and curl up to sleep. Preschoolers will love the lively rhymed couplets and many opportunities to practice emerging counting skills: "Five little ducks land deep in snow./Three ducks duck when the first two THROW!" Hiroe Nakata's warm-hued palette casts a rosy glow on the playful friends. Kids will have a great time searching for the red bird and bunnies that peek out from trees and bushes. 2005, Henry Holt, Ages 2 to 6.
