Award-winning author/illustrator Nancy Tafuri presents a charming bedtime companion to her classic Caldecott Honor winner HAVE YOU SEEN MY DUCKLING?.
The sun is setting and it's time for Mama to lead her youngsters home. One dawdling duckling falls behind, drawn to the pond creatures who call, "Goodnight, Little Duckling!" as he paddles by. Soon, Mama and the other ducklings are all out of sight, but there's no need for alarm. One special turtle is waiting to carry the little duckling back to Mama's nest.
In this fresh companion to her classic Caldecott Honor winner HAVE YOU SEEN MY DUCKLING?, Nancy Tafuri's beautifully detailed watercolors and spare text once again capture the tender feelings and joyful wonder of childhood.
