Little Quack's Hide and Seek: 06/25/10
Little Quack's Hide and Seek by Lauren Thompson is a cute book about a family of ducklings playing hide and seek with their mother. It has bright illustrations that delighted Harriet.
Little Quack is the last to hide when her mother starts counting. She watches as all her siblings take the best hiding places. In desperation she ends up finding the best hiding spot. Her solution is a humorous twist on the typical hide and seek picture book story.
As a parent I laughed along with my children as Little Quack pulled that trick on her mother. I can't tell you how many times my children have been right beside me and in my panic to keep them near me I haven't seen them doing exactly what I've asked. The only unbelievable part of the book was how the other ducklings kept quiet. When one of my two is hiding in plain sight, the other doesn't keep quiet about it.
