Ollie the Stomper and Other Books About Ducks

So, it’s duck week at Fragile Earth Stuffed Animals.  Our story time (Tuesdays at 11AM and Saturdays at 1PM) book this week will be Ollie the Stomper by Olivier Dunrea.

Fans of the Gossie & Friends books will enjoy little Ollie and his big personality as he finds his way in the barnyard. Irresistible characters and delightful text make these board books perfect for springtime reading and sharing.

Mary Beth had so much fun reading this to the kids this morning.  While trying to decide which book to read we had some great title to choose.

Duck by Randy Cecil

Duck is a carousel animal who spends her days watching flocks of real, flying ducks — and her nights dreaming of soaring among them. Flying is all she can think about, until the day a lost little duckling waddles into her life. Soon Duck and Duckling are inseparable: they walk together, play together, even dream of flying together. Then the time comes when Duckling’s yellow fuzz is replaced by long white feathers, and Duck is determined to do whatever it takes to help him learn to fly. But what if helping Duckling find his wings means being left behind?

Duck on a Bike by David Shannon

Caldecott Honor winner David Shannon applies his wonderful off-beat humor to the story of a duck who decides to try riding a bike–and loves it! Another young, funny book perfect for reading aloud.

I’m sure we’ve missed one or two or ten favorite duck books; there are a lot to choose from.  Just let us know in the comments if we missed your favorite.
