The graphics in this board book just pop! And what a perfect accompaniment they make to the bouncy rhyming fun of the text. This is going to be the very first book I read to my nephew when I meet him this weekend, and I'm so excited about it!

We read this at Kmart this morning as part of their Easter display. It was a cute book about ducklings that focused on the sounds they make beyond quacking including splashing and wing flapping.
