A young girl shares her observations about the mallards near her house in an engaging, informative story sure to make a splash with duck lovers.
Quack quack, Quack-quaack-quack.
Itís the first sound I hear every morning.
The young girl in this story may live in the city, but outside her window thereís a river full of mallard ducks! She hears them as soon as she wakes up, and on the way to school she sees them upside down bobbing for food. Interspersed with fun facts, her enthusiastic commentary about her feathered neighbors ó what they look like, how they behave, where they nest, where they sleep ó pairs swimmingly with cheerful watercolor illustrations.
