New York Times bestselling author Lauren Thompson serves up a delightfully breezy story/counting book about a duckling who musters the courage to take the plunge. When he hears from Mama Duck that it's time to leave the nest, Little Quack happily follows his siblings to the water's edge. But after seeing them each dive bravely into the water after her, the timid guy isn't sure he's got the gumption to follow along. Fortunately, though, Little Quack has a cheerfully supportive family, and with some coaxing and confidence ("'You can do it,' Mama said./ 'We know you can!' said Widdle, Waddle, Piddle, and Puddle."), the littlest guy makes the jump with a big splash.
With warm, welcoming artwork from first-time picture book illustrator Derek Anderson, Little Quack combines a plucky story with an easy-to-follow counting lesson. Kids will marvel at the Quack-U-Lator at the bottom, providing a fun and easy numbers primer for them as Little Quack's tale builds plenty of self-confidence. A heartwarming tale that's fun for quiet sharing and a surefire storytime winner, this ducky read gets top billing. Matt Warner
