Have You Seen My Duckling is pretty standard pre-school fare, I think, but do little kids *ever* tire of "hide and seek" books? Not the little kids I know, that's for sure! My four year old nephew read this one on his own at first, and he had a good time doing that. It was all much better, though, when he and I looked at it together, because I was able to draw his attention to some of the details and nuances that he missed on the first pass. He had fun looking for the missing duckling, and he smiled a contented smile at the end. An entertained and happy little boy equals a good book.
