Little White Duck

Little White Duck

by Walt Whippo, Bernard Zaritzky Illustrated by Joan Paley
Recorded by everyone from Burl Ives to Raffi, this simple song has been entertaining fans for fifty years. Now, for the first time, it is brought to life in picture book form by artist Joan Paley, whose collages were described by School Library Journal as "quite impressive ... a cross between the works of Denise Fleming and Lois Ehlert". Bold and lively, this book is sure to have readers chanting along with a duck that quacks!, a bug that buzzes!, a snake that hisses!, and a frog that glugs! Musical notation is included.
