Little Duckling will get wet--but only in its own time!

The little duckling wouldn't get wet. No. Not yet. The little duckling isn't ready, and no matter how many animal friends come along to try to push, only the duckling can decide when the time is right. Encourage a strong sense of self early in life with this delightful board book.

Author Gek Tessaro's colorful art has a cut-paper style reminiscent of Eric Carle. Playful language in a patterned text interacts with the visuals to provide an engaging experience for any toddler at story time, bed time, or pool time.
