Duck, Duck, Dinosaur

Duck, Duck, Dinosaur
Written by Kallie George
Illustrated by Oriol Vidal
HarperCollins Publishers, 2016. Picture Book.

 Mama Duck has been caring for three eggs. One by one they begin to hatch. The first egg hatches and she names the little duckling Feather. The second egg hatches and she names the little duckling Flap. Then, while the two ducklings bicker over who is bigger, the third egg hatches and out comes a big dinosaur, who Mama Duck names Spike. The three siblings compete with each other to prove who is the sweetest and funniest. Finally, after they are all cold and wet they learn that “Under Mama’s wings, no one was bigger or sweeter, or funnier, or better.”

Quirky and fun, this book will be a hit with little children, especially if they have siblings. Bright and cartoonish illustrations add to the humor and charm of Duck, Duck, Dinosaur. This fun little book proves that family members come in all shapes and sizes (and species!).
