A sweet, joyful and charmingly funny springtime read-aloud celebrating the determination of a little duckling who finds inventive ways to keep up with his family.
Mama Duck and her ducklings are paddling to the pond. But the littlest duck, Puck, keeps falling behind… “Keep up, Duck!” his mama quacks. But Puck is determined. Even if he can’t swim very fast, he WILL find a way to keep up!
The youngest of readers will soon be joining in with Mama Duck’s irresistible refrain in this noisy, joyful and bouncy read-aloud from the illustrator of children’s favourite, Do Like a Duck Does!
