When a rhythmic read-aloud master pairs up with a Caldecott Honor­winning artist to visit endearing species of baby animals, the result can only be instant toddler appeal.

QUACK! Mama Duck announces the hatching of five peeping, waddling, flapping, nibbling, wobbling, wibbling baby ducklings. Splish, splosh, splash!

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