Description

A lively, lilting text by Phyllis Root links with luminous collages by Holly Meade create a board book perfect for reading aloud to the preschool crowd.

When a master of the rhythmic read-aloud joins a Caldecott honor-winning artist to visit baby animals, the result is sure to have little listeners clamoring for more. With a lilting text and luminous collage illustrations, QUACK! shows Mama Duck heralding the hatching of five peeping, waddling, flapping, nibbling ducklings — splish, splosh, splash!
