Seymour and Henry love to play and can’t wait to jump in the pond. Plop! But when it’s time to go home, pit-a-pat, they run away, scampering farther and farther from their mother. Now it’s starting to rain, and Mommy is nowhere to be seen. "Q

Two little ducklings, Seymour and Henry, don't want to stop playing. They run from their mother, playing as they go. When the rain comes, they hurry back to their mother. Safe with their mother, they are tucked up and warm.

What I thought: Delightful. The story is great. Kids will identify with Seymour and Henry. After all, who wants to stop playing? The onomatopoeia was good--it will make this a story time favorite. I loved the illustrations--soft and colorful. What a great idea to make the duck

A good book, but possibly too young of a book for elementary students. Maybe use for introductory kindergarten students!

I love this book. It's a sweet gentle story that will work perfectly at my story times for 2 year olds. It has the perfect pacing and pitch, with just enough repetition.

Why then am I only giving it 3 stars?

Because the author/illustrator based this artwork on a pair of toy stuffed ducks belonging to her son. And they LOOK like stuffed animals. Mama Duck is even gingham checked!

Don't get me wrong. I'm still going to use this book and the kids will love it.
But as a fan of Kim Lewis' other, beautifu
I love the illustrations--so soft and cuddly-looking. This is an adorable little book about two slightly naughty little ducks and I love them :)
I love this book! The illustrations are gentle, precious, and adorable. The ducks are toys!!! So, so cute and now I wish I had a mother duck with two baby ducks just like them. (The author/illustrator's son had two toys ducks, which was the "inspiration" for this book.) It is possible for something to be so cute it makes your heart ache. That's what this book does for me.

You try looking at the page where they're waiting and see if you don't smile in the sweet tenderness that is conveyed.
Recommended Ages: toddler - K

Seymour and Henry want to stay outside and play. They run, jump and hide. But when the rain comes, they hurry home to mother.

Cute book, lots of fun "sound" words (plop, pit-a-pat). Good book for toddler/preschool storytime.
Very simple story about two ducks in a rain storm. It is ok it really does not have much to it but a very cute story. Ages birth+
Lots of position words and an entertaining story. A good find for a house with toddlers and early readers.

Has a fun story, and also teaches a good lesson. I like that the little lesson does not overpower the story.

I have a soft spot for ducklings, but this one didn't have anything memorable.
