Five Little Ducks

Pamela Paparone. NorthSouth, $7.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-1-55858-700-7

Notable for the quiltlike compositions of a countryside in saturated blues and greens, Pamela Paparone's Five Little Ducks tells of a mother duck's quintet of ducklings who go off each day and whose numbers dwindle one by one. Luckily, when she goes out searching and ""quacking"" for them, they all return, seated at her table in a final image of this hand-size board book, also available in paperback. .
