Ill. by Will Hillenbrand. Candlewick Press, 2018. ISBN 9780763680329
Highly recommended. Little duck is scared of the water, and worried he will sink. Sometimes we all need to be brave to face something that we know we should be able to do and this book looks at the bravery needed by little duck to overcome his fear and the satisfaction that he feels when he is successful.
This is a lovely story of how little duck with the support of his family and friends is able to overcome his fear. This book can be used to talk with children about their own fears.
The illustrations in this book are beautiful and they support the text in telling this story.
I highly recommend this book for young children.
