One spring day a little boy goes fishing in a pond and he finds an egg, which he takes home. A few weeks later the egg hatches and a little duck comes into the world. The little boy decides to call the duck Henry.

   It isn’t long before Henry is ready to go exploring. He gets to know the family dog, and enjoys sitting on its back. He goes into the barnyard and quacks at the hen, rabbit, and goat, but none of these animals want to make friends with Henry, and as he grows up Henry starts to get lonely.

  Packed with beautiful full color photographs, this delightful board book tells the story of a duckling. Children will enjoy pressing the button that is built into the book and hearing the surprise sound it creates.
