Caldecott Honor 1985
This great little story was one I had never read before. It won the honor medal when I was seven--and this book seems very pre-school, so maybe I was just a bit too old??!!
I enjoyed reading this book to my kiddos. Oliver (3) seemed to get into it more than his older sister. We enjoyed hunting for the hidden duckling on each page. The bold drawings and simple story were appreciated by the young readers the book was intended for.
High: Looking for the hidden duckling on each page.
Low: This book has a limited audience. It is a book meant for the young (which I don't mind--it just isn't probably widely read).
My favorite illustration. I love the little heads peeping under the water.
