Discover colors with Duck! Duck loves rainy days. One rainy day means . . . red boots, an orange umbrella, blue puddles—and a rainbow surprise!  With simple language, this cheery companion to One Snowy Day introduces the basic concept of colors. The bright, graphic illustrations shimmer with silver foil-stamped raindrops!

Lexile: AD170

A little duck waddles cozily into independence as rain gives way to play.

With red boots and orange umbrella in wing, sunny Duck meets many friends; a frog follows him through puddles, splashing with glee, and the welcoming ant visits him near the mud pile. Duck may only be a few feet outside his front door, but his outside amusements fully capture his attention; after an afternoon of play, Duck reunites with Mama and fluffy towel, too. The light sprinkling of words keeps focus on the featured colors (blue puddles, pink worms, black bugs). The sky naturally shifts from dark to light blues until a rosy gleam touches the lush, green grass. Shiny rain adds textured sheen through the placement of foil-stamped raindrops. Cuddly Duck almost glows with his fuzzy golden feathers, chipper beak and rounded belly. The padded cover and large thick pages support independent perusal. Also available as an iPad app.

This view of youthful expression teeters just on the safe side of saccharine, with a forecast all rainbow; clearly, no chance of thunderstorms in sight.

This is an adorable book! Perfect for young children learning about books, colors and words!

I absolutely Love the illustrations, the vibrant colors and I especially like the silver foiled-stamped raindrops! I thought that was a very nice touch and really makes the book unique along with the padded cover. My daughter absolutely loves this book and is definitely one of her favorites!
