While you are getting dressed for school, walking home from the playground, or climbing into bed at the end of a long day, the ducks in your neighborhood are also going about their routines. This nonfiction picture book is filled with observations about mallard ducks, the kind you often see in city parks. Lovely earth tone illustrations show the difference between male and female ducks, how they dabble for their food in the water, and where they go when it gets dark at night. Whether you already know the ducks in your neighborhood or have yet to meet them, this charming book will help you learn more about your feathered friends.
