All the information you could want for a young reader is beautifully on display in this attractive picture book. Lovely pictures show delightful ducks down by the river while the useful text explains why some ducks quack louder than others, what ducks eat and how you tell a male duck from a female duck.

Synopsis

Just Ducks! by Nicola Davies

From spring right through to winter...there they are! Down on the river! Quack quuuack, Quack-quaack-quack...What do you know about ducks? I bet you know that they quack...a lot! Well, discover much more in this book that's all about, well, just ducks! As always, Nicola Davies blends together non-fiction facts and a lyrical narrative to create a fantastic picture-book story.

Part of the Nature Storybooks series, this new title about ducks is a perfect first reference book for little children! Salvatore Rubbino places his ducks against a sumptuous watercolour setting and his illustrations perfectly capture their wit, playfulness and movement.

Reviews

The chief charm of this book is not only that it does not overload children with information but that it is illustrated by Salvatore Rubbino who shows off an irresistible, breezy talent as he illustrates a day in the life of ducks Guardian
