Jump, Little Wood Ducks


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.  Will they find their courage when Mama tells them all about a Wood Duck's wonderful life?

Marion Dane Bauer weaves a delightful tale that's both quirky and cute, while 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.
