A picture book for very young readers celebrating the joys of rainy days

Rain is falling, and these siblings know just how to enjoy it: raincoats, rubber boots, puddle jumping, swimming ducks, and wiggling worms! A thunderstorm sends the children scrambling for home and a cup of hot cocoa. Maybe it will rain again tomorrow!

From the acclaimed creators of Wild One, A Good Day for Ducks is a child-centered celebration of the joy that can be found in any rainy day. Jane Whittingham‘s spare but sensory-laden text and Noel Tuazon‘s energetic and endearing illustrations are packaged in a sturdy book format with padded cover, rounded corners, and extra-heavy paper. The format is perfect for eager, little hands, while the sweet story will make even the weariest of parents nostalgic for their own puddle-jumping days.

“The simple plot, short length, and rich vocabulary make this a fine choice for toddlers just beginning to listen to real stories, but there’s enough interest and action for older preschoolers as well. Just right to enjoy after a rainy-day outing…”—Kirkus Reviews

“This is a book in celebration of a rainy day, of siblings, and of the fun of experience. Like Jane’s previous book Wild One, this is a book about children enjoying nature.”—Canadian Bookworm

“In A Good Day for Ducks…we get to embrace our inner child and spend a day in the rain…This book makes me wish for rainy spring…days.”—Book Time
