Duck Readers

With so many ponds nearby, I've been noticing a lot of ducks waddling around outside the library. Ducks are such nice birds — sometimes I like to feed them bread! I like reading about ducks, too. What about you? The library has lots of great books in our Readers section all about ducks! Try:

Ducks in muck by Lori Haskins ; illustrated by Valeria Petrone

Lucky duck by written by Ellen Weiss ; illustrated by Brian Lies

Goose and Duck by Jean Craighead George ; illustrated by Priscilla Lamont

Duck & company by Kathy Caple

And maybe next time you come to the library, you'll see some ducks outside on the grass, too!

Spring, where did you go?

Plan some outdoor activites for yourself, and before you know it, it will actually be nice enough outside to do them!
