Have You Seen My Duckling?

Have You Seen My Duckling?

by Nancy Tafuri Illustrated by Nancy Tafuri

None of the pond-residents — bird, turtle, beaver, or fish — has seen Mother Duck's missing baby. But clever viewers of these charming color scenes can see that the duckling isn't really lost, just adventuring — and never very far away.
