You may have seen or heard the news that we have new eggs in our library nest. Mother ducks were spotted laying eggs in our Children's Department courtyard again, and if all goes well we look forward to welcoming baby ducks. While we wait for further action, might I suggest looking for a few ducky stories? Some recommendations - both fiction and nonfiction - are below. If you find one you especially enjoy, I bet the ducks in the courtyard (or me, the big friendly bear right next to them) might enjoy listening to you read it.

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!
