Moo! Grr! Awoo! Fun animal sounds in a story where a community bands together to help two adorable ducklings.

Peep-peep! Brother and Sister Duck are lost. Everyone must help! Moose will try to call Mama and Papa Duck with his earth-shattering bellow. Moooo! Wolf will use her piercing howl. Awooo! and Bear his Grrr! What finally attracts Mama and Papa, though, are the sweet peep-peeps of their little ones. A story about cooperation, community, and noisy fun! Hooooot!

Ink and watercolor paintings are masterful, charming, and joyful.

Perfect for fans of Moo, Baa, La La La!

Praise For Lost and Found Ducklings

"This tender story of parental love is an excellent choice for one-on-one sharing, but groups will also relish making the animal sounds and chiming in on the repetitive phrases."—School Library Journal

"Their expressions, along with the letters flowing from each critter’s mouth ('Awoooooooo! Awooooooo!'), make this story more funny than alarming . . . Lots of story-hour potential here."—The Horn Book

"This is a message of quiet voices drowning out a cacophony of sound. It is a cautionary tale advising us to listen to hushed and vulnerable voices."—School Library Connection
