Book Description
Dandelion Duckling is ready to explore . . . all by himself. Soon he’s paddling across the pond to visit with his friends—Dragonfly, Little Polliwog, and the Centipedes. Mama is watching closely, though, and when she sees danger, she sounds the warning: QUACK! QUACK! QUACK! and Dandelion scoots right back. But one day not even Mama sees the weasel waiting in the willows. Can Dandelion remember what Mama Quack had taught him this time, before it’s too late? Mike Wohnoutka’s vibrant, sun-splashed paintings capture the exuberance and can-do spirit of Marjorie Blain Parker’s rhythmic read-aloud.
