Luckily, Grampa comes by, and he always knows what to say to make Baby Duck feel better — and braver. Maybe she'll be brave enough to line up her fine, strong feet on the edge of the pool and jump right in!

Meet the Author

Amy Hest is the award-winning author of more than twenty books for young readers, including the much-loved Baby Duck series. "In these stories, Mr. and Mrs. Duck tend to say all the things I wish I had never said to my own children," the author confesses. "And Grampa Duck says all the things I wish I had said to them."

Jill Barton has collaborated with Amy Hest on all the Baby Duck books, and her charming visual humor has helped win the series numerous awards. Of MAKE THE TEAM, BABY DUCK! she says, "I was trying to decide whether Grampa had come to swim or whether he had just come to see Baby Duck, so at first he wasn’t suited up. It was putting Grampa into his silly, old-fashioned ‘swimming costume’ that really made the book fizz for me."
