Just in time for spring, here’s a sunny addition to our collection of successful embossed picture books, such as The Snow Bear and The Little Penguin.
Little Duck hatches out of his egg all alone. Where is his family? He searches by the river, in the forest, and in the farmyard, but no place feels like home. With a lot of courage and help from some new friends, Little Duck discovers at last where he truly belongs.
On every page, lavish embossing softly illuminates the lovingly rendered ducklings, bunnies, and chicks, along with their grassy habitats. Animal lovers of all ages will delight in this soothing story of homecoming and a family’s bond.

Stephanie Boey has illustrated many books for young readers, including The Little Penguin (Dutton).From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-In this delightful book, Little Duck has just made his way into the world; he is all alone. Told by a frog that he belongs in a pond, he sets off to find one. Various animals offer advice, and finally a dog leads him home. Boey's large, winning illustrations, set against clean white backgrounds, include embossed pages. Although this text is a bit wordy, children will surely enjoy the sweet story and the lovely art.
