PreSchool-K–In this fourth entry about an adorable duck, Little Quack and his four visually distinct siblings meet Little Ribbit. While the other ducklings are wary of him at first–hes too little, too green, and a FROG!–Little Quack has no such hesitations, and quack, quack, ribbit, ribbit! off they go. As it turns out, the frogs sense of fun perfectly matches that of the ducks. He loves to splash, squish in the mud, bounce on a log, and dunk in the water. As their play moves from one activity to the next, the other ducklings join in the fun one by one. The text uses repetitive phrasing, lively wordplay, and entertaining sound effects (Plunka, splunka, plunka, splunka, plunk!) to move the story along. The acrylic artwork is filled with bright close-ups that depict the endearing characters. The large colorful pages, heartwarming message of friendship and acceptance, and contagious enthusiasm will attract readers. Filled with unequivocally positive energy, this exuberant tale shows children the joy of making new friends.–Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
