A simple rhyming text that scans naturally, about a young girl's affection for a baby duckling she nurses for a while and then sends on its way. The illustrations are all about the girl and the duck, going through life in a close and loving way. There's not a lot of background to distract. The statements about love are true on many levels, in many circumstances. It is simple and lovely. Edie Ching (up to 7)
