Reviews - What do customers think about In the Rain with Baby Duck?

My baby loves this baby  Dec 6, 2005
I don't know what it is about this book, but my almost 3 year old boy loves it (and it doesn't even have one dinosaur in it!) We checked it out from the library and renewed it for 2 months, but I finally pried it out of his hands to return it before the late fees mounted- so now I must buy one of our own. The illustrations are bright and attractive making self reading as fun as when mom/dad reads it.
A Grands favorite  Jun 19, 2003
My darling Grandchildren just love having me read this story to them. It moves along well, shows sympathy to Baby Duck and lets little ones know that when they are not happy there is probably something that can be done to fix it. My Grands ask for this and other Baby Duck books to be read over and over again.
We sure got our money's worth!  Sep 30, 2001
Well, we FINALLY bought this book after my 2-year-old checked it out from the library week after week. Each time we returned it, she'd ask for "That Duck book" at bedtime. It has a delightful story & illustrations that allow pre-readers to "read" the story to you by just looking at the pictures. I suggest getting the hardcover because you'll read it so many times, that you'll want it to hold up for years.
One of my favorites  Sep 9, 2000
My son received this book for his 2nd birthday, and loved it. And it's one of my all-time favorites, too. It captures very subtly and lovingly the complex relationships between toddlers and parents grandparents. I never tire of reading it to my son.
perfect for a rainy day  Jan 20, 2000
A great book for young children... beautiful illustrations, simple yet delightful story about a duck who dislikes the rain (until Grampa helps out). I've read it over and over again to my two preschoolers and they never tire of it (me neither!) Especially fun to read on rainy days.
