Have you ever wondered how ducks spend the whole day in the water and never get wet? Did you know that they can dive 100 feet deep, and still come up dry? Meet ten different kinds of ducks in this classic text featuring stunning new watercolor illustrations and a new Find Out More page. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It's a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.
Why don't ducks get wet? Ducks dip and dive, but they stay dry because they spread oil over their feathers to make them waterproof. Learn more inside and get to know different kinds of ducks.
