Swim, Duck, Swim!
Release date: May 2014
It’s time for Duckling to jump in the water and do what ducks do―swim! But this particular duckling doesn’t want to get wet. He’d rather take a nap. And he’s really, really mad that everyone keeps trying to boss him around! Luckily, Mama and Papa Duck are very, very patient.
Will Duckling join his siblings in the pond?
Here is a charming story, illustrated with exquisite, up-close photos, that will help young readers learn to swim―or try anything new.
Praise for Swim, Duck, Swim!
