Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Baby Duck is a bit under the weather in Guess Who, Baby Duck!, the newest in the series by Amy Hest, illus. by Jill Barton. But when Grampa comes to visit with an album "all filled up with pictures," Baby Duck soon feels much better. This comforting story may well inspire readers to look through their own baby albums.

Children's Literature
Just as young children are cheered by photographs of themselves, so too is Baby Duck. It is a rainy day and Baby Duck has the sniffles when she sees Grampa coming for a visit. He has a cheering-up present. The two of them snuggle in a big chair by the cozy fire and share a special book filled with family pictures. Baby Duck looks at herself taking her first wobbly steps, riding in her wagon, and eating birthday cake. She likes what she sees! Soon, Baby Duck is feeling so much better and makes a surprise for Grampa. Watercolor paintings lovingly and playfully capture the heart-warming story. Snuggle up with a little one and share a delightful experience! 2004, Candlewick Press, Ages 3 to 6.

School Library Journal
PreS-K-Baby Duck has a cold and Grampa comes to visit, bringing a "cheering-up present," an album of her baby photos. Together they look at pictures of her on the day she was born, after her first bath, taking her first steps, and on her first birthday. She feels better and draws a picture of Grampa kissing her cheek, which is just what he does. This tale beautifully taps into the heart of all the "Baby Duck" books, the youngster's special relationship with her loving grandfather. The text here is simpler than in the earlier offerings, and includes repeated refrains that will hold the interest of young children. Barton's watercolor-and-pencil art is as warm and playful as Baby Duck herself. Many of the pages resemble those of a scrapbook, with "photos" of the duckling and her family set against textured pastel backgrounds; Grampa and Baby's reactions to them are depicted on facing pages. Children will love this "cheering-up present" from Barton and Hest.-Rachel G. Payne, New York Public Library Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
