"Jump, Little Wood Ducks" is an adorable children's book about three little baby wood ducks in their nest in a tree and their mama and siblings asking them to jump and come join them down on the ground. I read it to my four year old daughter. At the end of the book she was smiling and we were both laughing a little. She wanted to know more about what wood ducks are and why they live in trees. In the back of the book, it tells you just that, and more! The photographs are so real and beautiful that they make the story and and family of ducks come to life.
What a great way for your children and grandchildren to learn something new about ducks! I honestly had no idea that some ducks lived in trees! This is a great book for your child's Easter Basket!
