It’s time for Duckling to jump in the water and do what ducks do—swim! But he doesn’t want to get wet. He’d rather take a nap. And he’s really, really mad that everyone keeps telling him what to do!

Luckily, Mama and Papa Duck are very, very patient, and soon, Duckling will join his siblings in the pond. Here is a charming story, illustrated with exquisite, up-close photos, that will help young readers learn to swim—or try anything new.

Praise for Swim, Duck, Swim!

"Sure to delight any animal lover or reluctant child needing the confidence to try something new . . . A winner for group or one-on-one sharing." - School Library Journal

"Standing in for any reluctant preschooler faced with a new experience, a duckling goes through stages of irritation at parental urging and then nervousness before finally taking a first plunge…. A childhood triumph portrayed just right. Both the archetypal challenge and the creative collaboration go swimmingly." Kirkus Reviews, starred review
 
"Water-shy readers will identify with the duckling's quandary, but also, perhaps, with the success it finds after diving in with a splash." -Publishers Weekly
