47. Just Ducks! by Nicola Davies and Salvatore Rubbino

Just Ducks! by Nicole Davies and Salvatore Rubbino
Published February 2012 Walker Books

From the publisher:

What do you know about ducks? I bet you know that they quack … a lot! Well, discover much more in this book that’s all about, well, just ducks! Learn all about which is a boy duck and which is a girl, why some quack louder and others softer. Find out what they eat when it is cold outside and where they perch their bottoms to sleep!

This is the new title in what used to be called the Read and Wonder Series, and was then called the Nature Storybook Series and now doesn't seem to have a series name, even though it follows the same format.

These books, would still be considered picture books, but they also have factual information threaded throughout the pages in a slightly smaller font than that of the main story.

In this book we follow the little girl through her day from when she wakes up hearing the ducks in the river, to when she feeds them on her way home from school, and finally when they settle down for the night.  All the while learning interesting duck facts on the way.  There is even an index in the back of the book

Who will like this book: Girls and boys age 5+
Read it if you like: the Nature Storybook Series


  1. Would this work as a Storytime book???

    1. Hi Meegan,
      I think it would work.
      You could decide whether you you wanted to just read the story, or the story and the facts.
