The Lovereading4Kids comment

One little duckling is determined to go exploring in this funny farmyard series perfect for early readers. For more farmyard fun with the animals at Potter's Barn, look out for the other books in the series, Where are my Lambs, Billy the Kid goes Wild, Barnyard Hullabaloo, Mish Mash Hash, Chicks just want to have fun and Moo Baa Baa Quack.

There are lots of Early Reader titles to choose from that are great for sharing with your youngsters and for kids just starting out on the reading journey to read alone. Check out the extracts on the site as some of the titles are slightly more advanced than others - for example the Francesca Simon animal story titles set at Potters Barn are great to get started on whereas the Sally Gardner, Georgie Adams and Vivian French titles have a bit more text to each page. Each and every one of them though has full colour illustrations on every page.
