"Little Quack" by Lauren Thompson

Poor little Quack. His bigger brother and sister ducks are swimming in the pond, but he’s on the edge, not sure if he’s ready to wade in. It’s hard to be the little duck near a big pond – a concept toddlers (especially those with older siblings) intuitively understand. To help your toddler conquer uncertainty, try reading this book aloud. Also, quacking along is a fun counting activity you can do together.
