Little Duck learns how to celebrate his birthday with a little help from all the other animals on the farm in this charming picture book from the award-winning duo, Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.

Happy first birthday, Little Duck!

Everyone wants to look their best for the party. But Little Duck has never had a birthday before--so how better to learn how to prepare than to do what all the other animals do! The sheep trim their wool--so Little Duck trims her feathers. The pigs need a mud bath--so Little Duck quish and quashes, too. All over the barnyard Little Duck snips, slurps, squishes, and shimmy shakes herself ready until...WHOOPS! It's party picture time--and Little Duck is a big mess. No matter--it's not something Farmer Brown's frosted maple cake can't fix!

It is Little Duck's first birthday, and everyone gets ready for the party. Little Duck imitates the preparations with unpleasant results. Children will laugh at the funny pictures and at the story's ending.

Most of Doreen Cronin's Click Clack books are too long for story time but this one has a lot of (fun) repetition that kids can jump in on. Plus the ending is messily perfect.
