A ducky new tale from the creators of Five Little Ducklings Go to Bed bring you

Five Little Ducklings Go to School

It's time for the five little ducklings to go to school. Four of the little ducklings shout, "YIPPEE! HOORAY! OH BOY!" The fifth little duckling sobs, "BOO-HOO! I won't go to school! I'm going to miss you!" But when Mama reminds them, "Even though we'll be apart, we'll still be in each other's heart," the little ducklings go forth and soon discover "School is great!"



It's bedtime for the five little ducklings. The first little duckling says, "Okay. It's been a very busy day." The second little duckling says, "Come on! Let's go and put our jammies on." But when the fifth little duckling says with delight, "I'm not going to bed tonight..." - the smooth-running train to bedtime is temporarily derailed. However, a little cooperation from the ducklings and a little love from Mama duck soon set things right for a happy, snuggly night.

"Of course," said Mother Bunny. "You're my extra-special one. And I'll love you just as much when the baby bunnies come."

Every child is anxious about the arrival of a new brother or sister. In Carol Roth's sweet, comforting story, various animal mothers-and one human one-reassure their little ones that love has no limits, and they will be loved as much as before.

"Kiss, kiss," say the mommies. "I love you."

"Hug, hug," say the daddies. "Love you, too!"

Carol Roth's reassuring rhymes and Steve Lavis's friendly, funny animal parents show young readers that moms and dads go away - but always come back.

It's bedtime, but Woolly the little lamb can't find his mother. Who will tuck him in?

"I will, I will," said Mrs. Cow. "Don't you worry. I know how. Everything will be all right. I'll tuck you in real snug and tight." But Mrs. Cow wraps poor Woolly up so tight that he can't move.

"STOP!" cries Woolly. "That's not right! Oh, who will tuck me in tonight?"

Mrs. Cat, Mrs. Horse, Mrs. Pig, and Mrs. Duck all try, but their efforts prove disastrous, and Woolly grows more and more desperate. Mother Sheep returns at last and tucks her little one in just right—as only a mother can.

From the team who created the best-selling Little Bunny's Sleepless Night comes another comic, yet sweet and satisfying, bedtime story.
