Duckling is fascinated by the pale blue egg his Mommy laid. He doesn’t remember his own egg but Mommy and Daddy and Auntie Duck tell him about it. “You came in one too,” he tells an astonished Cousin Small after Grandpa affirms that “all ducks do.” Everyone watches and waits for the arrival of the newest duck on the pond, but no one is more eager than Duckling in Martin Waddell’s cheerful story that captures the anticipation and excitement that surrounds the arrival of a new family member. (Ages 2–4)
