Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Random House launches Big Little Golden Books with a quartet of vintage titles in a new, larger trim size. First published in 1942, The Poky Little Puppy by Janette Sebring Lowrey, illus. by Gustaf Tenggren, stars a curious canine who just can't keep up with the pack. In Scuffy the Tugboat by Gertrude Crampton, illus. by Tibor Gergely, Scuffy sets out to see the world but soon decides to go back where he belongs-the bathtub. It's springtime in Margaret Wise Brown's Home for a Bunny (1956), illus. by Garth Williams, and a brown rabbit looks for a place to live. After interviewing other animals about their abodes ("I would fall out of a nest," he explains to the robin), he finally finds the right match. In The Fuzzy Duckling (1949), a counting book by Jane Werner Watson, illus. by Alice and Martin Provensen, a baby duck meets other animals including "two frisky colts," and "six lively lambs/ with thick soft fleece," but none will join him for a walk through the woods.
Children's Literature
It's a beautiful morning, and the fuzzy duckling is in search of a friend to go for a walk with him. Along the way he encounters two frisky colts, three spotted calves, four noisy turkeys, and so on through the barnyard until he meets eight hungry pigs. Unfortunately, no one wants to walk until he finds the mother duck and nine ducklings, his brothers and sisters, whom he joins for the walk back home for supper. "This is the best way to go for a walk," the duckling decides, happy at last. This delightful book was first published over fifty years ago, but the book's simple text will be as enjoyable to today's children as it was to their parents and even grandparents. The lovely illustrations provide plenty of detail for children to observe and discuss throughout repeated readings. A wonderful read-aloud for the youngest children, the text is also appropriate for beginning readers. 2003 (orig. 1949), Golden Books/Random House,

    The Fuzzy Duckling

    I bought this book for a Christmas gift. My husband (53) read this when he was a child. At that time the animals illustrated in it were furry and fuzzy. He was tickled to get it and the grandchildren love reading it too.
