Baby animals abound in this adorable introduction
Here's a puppy, there's a kitten . . . a yawning fawn and chuckling ducklings

The perfect introduction to animal names and animal groups, Chuckling Ducklings features baby animals of every variety. The bouncing text and adorable illustrations will become a favorite with kids as they learn the special baby names that match all the grown-up animals they know and love. 

My Review:

This is one of Savannah's favorite books to both read and just at the illustrations. With over 50 baby animals, ranging from familiar ones like puppy, kitten and fawn, to the unfamiliar, cria, puggle and leveret.  The colored pencil illustrations are really engaging and go nicely with the rhyming text. And, with only a few words on each page, a toddler will not get distracted easily.  It is hard to keep Savannah entertained and engaged in books, but books written like this work wonders at bedtime.  We talk to her about the animals, as it is a great educational tool.  

If your child is an animal lover or you are looking for a great book to add to your toddler's book collection that is a quick read, why not check out Chuckling Ducklings and Baby Animal Friends today.
