What does the duck say? Every time it rushes to catch up with the flock, whether through the reeds on one page, around the flowers on another, out of the mud, over the stones, under the hedge, there's always a reason for a silly "Quack!" Chances are the family byword for "hurry up!" will become "Quick, Duck!" ~ Eight Cousins

Snail leaves a silvery trail as it slides down a flower, over a stone, in and out of the holes in a brick, etc. The silver invites a little finger to trace along it, all the way home to dinner. ~ Eight Cousins

Eight Cousins Pick of the Year 2013

Objects are fairly easy for a baby to connect with a sound: you can point to a spoon and say "spoon" and the message is clear. Verbs are a little trickier, and this book offers verbs with demonstrations! A finger-size hole lets a big person's finger show the baby how a cat wiggles her tail, a deer bucks his antlers, a penguin pecks with his beak, and five other animals with their actions. ~ Eight Cousins

One might ask, "Is this rushing things?" No, it's only a charming riff on the classic, with a single weather word on each double page, faced by a Bronte sentence that describes that weather. This book is only one of a half dozen BabyLit books that deconstruct Austen, Bronte, and Melville to delightful effect. ~ Eight Cousins
