It's my pond by Claire Garralon

Translated by Sarah Ardizzone. Book Island, 2016. ISBN 9781911496021
(Age: 4-7) Recommended. It's My Pond follows a number of different coloured ducks who claim 'it's my pond' until black duck helps them realize that it can be everyone's pond.
With repetitive text, it can be used as a potential take-home reader for slightly older ages, but additionally is a good resource for children learning their colours and counting.
