Hey, Duck! Carin Bramsen

This is a very cute little story where a little duckling tries to adopt a cat sibling.

Random House Children's Books sent me a copy of this picture book for review.  It has been published and would make a great gift in your Easter Basket for your child.  Check with your local bookstore for a copy. 

The duckling asks the cat why she walks the way she does and why her tail is so long.  She explains she's a cat, but the duckling still calls her a duck.  

I just love the illustrations in this book.  Ms. Bramsen shows the individual fluff sticking out from the head and the body on both animals.  It made me want to pick them both up and pet them; they look so soft!

The story ends with a compromise that will make your child laugh.  You could even have your child and their friend play the parts of cat and duckling and make it an interactive read.  This book is a real charmer.

Happy reading.
