I'm a Duck

Written by Eve Bunting and illustrated by Will Hillenbrand

Published by Candlewick Press

Publisher's Summary

I cannot swim, and that is bad.
A landlocked duck is very sad.
One day, an egg rolled out of a nest and right into a deep pond. Now
that egg is a little duck, and the water is still very scary. Jumping into
the pond at all seems impossible, never mind swimming in a line
with all his brothers. “You’re a duck, and ducks don’t sink,” Big Frog
points out. Practicing in a puddle helps a little, while backrubs and
snacks from his mother help a little more. Big Frog offers to hold his
friend’s wing and dive in together, but our little duck knows that some
challenges need to be faced alone. Even when they are very scary!
