My daughter has recently taken an interest in our local library. She is currently more interested in pulling the books off the shelf than reading them, but we’re working on that. 🙂
She recently selected a book that I have loved reading to her. On this snowy March day when I’d rather be seeing sunshine and flowers than clean sparkly snow I thought I’d share it with you.
It’s called Cold Little Duck, Duck, Duck by Lisa Westberg Peters. It tells the story of a little duck who arrives at her pond a little too early. It’s still frozen and her feet stick to the ice (ice, ice). Instead of going back (back, back) as the bear suggests, she starts to think (think, think) of all the wonderful things of spring. Soon her thoughts of spring begin to change her surroundings.
As I read this to my daughter over and over again, because it’s one of her favorites, I wish I could just think about spring and make it suddenly appear. Even though I can’t, I can enjoy the anticipation of warmer weather, flowers, and no more snow!
