The Fuzzy Duckling (Little Golden Book Classics)

by Jane Werner Watson (Author) Alice Provensen (Illustrator)

In one of the most beloved Little Golden Books of all time, Fuzzy Duckling learns to count and explores a busy farm! A perfect gift for your Easter baskets.

Early one morning, a small fuzzy duckling goes for a walk around the farm. Who will he meet along the way? Two frisky colts, three baby calves. . . . Little readers everywhere will love following the duckling and counting his new animal friends. Simple words and adorable, classic illustations from the legendary Alice and Martin Provensen make this book as perfect a gift today as it was when it was first published in 1949.

Little Golden Books have been loved by children for over 75 years. When they were first published in 1942, high-quality books for children hadn't been available at a price most people could afford. Little Golden Books changed that! Priced at just 25 cents and sold where people shopped every day, they caused an instant sensation and were soon purchased by the hundreds of thousands. Created by such talented writers as Margaret Wise Brown (author of Goodnight Moon) and Richard Scarry, Little Golden Books have helped millions of children develop a lifelong love of reading. Today, Little Golden Books feature beloved classics such as The Poky Little Puppy and Scuffy the Tugboat, plus new, original stories--the classics of tomorrow--ready to be discovered between their sturdy cardboard covers and gold-foil spines.
