Jump, Little Wood Ducks

by Marion Dane Bauer (Author)

Jump, Little Wood Ducks
Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade

It's a long way down. Will they jump?

If you were born high up in a tree, would you jump to the ground? That's what Wood Ducks are supposed to do, but three little ducklings aren't so sure. Mama Wood Duck calls for them to come, but her babies just won't budge! Will they find their courage when Mama tells them all about a Wood Duck's wonderful life?

Internationally recognized children's author Marion Dane Bauer weaves a delightful tale that's both quirky and cute, while acclaimed nature photographer Stan Tekiela brings the story to life with engaging photographs of Wood Ducks in action. Stan and Marion's first three picture books are all award winners, and Jump, Little Wood Ducks is another heartwarming story, based on Wood Duck behavior.

John Wallace's formal training was not in illustration, but rather theology, which he received at Cambridge University. However, he always loved drawing, and one of his early jobs was as a newspaper cartoonist. In his children's books illustrations, John is particularly inspired by what he calls "the gooniness" of young school children. John and his family divide their time between Brighton, England, and Long Island, New York.
