Why I like Bathtime with Ducky Duckling

Ducky heads to the pond to bathe with other ducks, (including an older duck I believe is his mother). Also at the pond to clean and play are frogs and fish. Once Ducky is clean, having had his tummy splashed by mommy and then splashing her back, it is time to play! Ducky instructs the frogs and fish he plays with in the follow-me game. “Wiggle my feathers—flap, flap, flap!” Go one everyone, move your arms and hands from side-to-side. Now splish and slash until you are all wet and clean.

Bathtime with Ducky Duckling is as six-page “bath-book.” Made out of new polyurethane foam, the soft material will hold up well in the tub. It is not to be mistaken for a sponge or a teething toy. Bathtime with Ducky Duckling is a real book. Enjoy the story in the bathtub (or shower if you prefer) without any damage sustained to the pages, all of which are waterproof. Young readers will love bathing with Ducky, especially if a few of his friends show up in the tub with your child. Following Ducky’s lead! Bathe your child, and then play with movement! Move the arms back and forth as Ducky moves his wings.

Ducky Duckling will bring giggles to your child’s face. Make bathtime a fun time with Ducky and his friends. Also available: Splish, Splash, Ducky!
