Just Ducks!

author: Nicola Davies
illustrator: Salvatore Rubbino

Quack quack, Quack-quaack-quack.
It’s the first sound I hear every morning.

The young girl in this story may live in the city, but outside her window there’s a river full of mallard ducks! She hears them as soon as she wakes up, and on the way to school she sees them upside down bobbing for food. Interspersed with fun facts, her enthusiastic commentary about her feathered neighbors — what they look like, how they behave, where they nest, where they sleep — pairs swimmingly with cheerful watercolor illustrations.
Back matter includes an index and a note about ducks.

A young girl shares her observations about the mallards near her house in an engaging, informative story sure to make a splash with duck lovers.
