Description

In A New Duck, Paul visits a city park through the seasons and observes Mallard ducks as they develop from egg to duckling to fledgling. Children will enjoy reading the cumulative, sing-song verse patterned after “The House that Jack Built,” and then peering under the flaps to learn interesting science facts. This book in the My First Look at series also contains a note to parents suggesting ways of exploring nature --- without disturbing it.

Editorial Review

This clever format provides two levels of text: one a simple story for quite young readers, and another, under the flap, a more involved scientific lesson.
