Duck Skates is a delightful romp through the snow with a quintet of mischievous ducks. The rhyme and rhythm are absolutely perfect, and the crisp language brings these pranksters to life. Best of all their delightful day ends tucked up in blankets and cocoa while their snowy boots and jackets drip on the hearth. Bravo to Lynne Berry. Hiroe Nakata's illustrations are also marvelous. Each reading reveals more darling touches. This is the best kind of picture book, one that will satisfy both child and adult through many, many readings.
Duck Skates is a bouncy, cheery book full of rhymes and numbers and colors. Lynne Berry has captured a child's enthusiasm for a new snowfall, the delight in playing together, and the comfort of home. As a grandmother and a collector of children's books for decades, I strongly recommend this one for your collection, your children, and your grandchildren.
