Read an Excerpt

“Jump, my pretty ducklings,” Mama says.
“See the trees, the flowers, the butterflies?
See your handsome papa on the pond?
Jump into the big, beautiful world.”

“Our nest is beautiful,” says duckling number one. “And big, too.”

“The world looks just fine from up here,”
says the second duckling.

The last duckling just whispers, “Uh-uh.”

“Jump, my hungry ducklings,” says Mama.
“Think about water bugs. Think water lilies, smartweed,
sweet flag. It’s time for you to eat.”

“Not so very hungry,” says duckling number one.

“How about breakfast in bed?” says the second duckling.

The last duckling just whispers, “Uh-uh.”

Mama walks back and forth, back and forth at the bottom of the tree.
The brothers and sisters walk back and forth, too.

“If you don’t jump,” Mama says at last,
“you will never, ever, ever learn to fly.”

“Who wants to do that?” cries duckling number one.

“Our wings are much too small,” says the second duckling.

The last duckling just flaps those tiny wings and says,
“FLY! I’VE WANTED TO FLY SINCE I WAS AN EGG!”

“Go!” cries the last duckling,
and the first duckling
