"...Now where did I leave my nest? she wondered aloud..."
Mallory starts on a journey to locate her eggs and finds herself sitting on more than one mystery nest along the way - that is until the true mother comes along.
Mallory the Forgetful Duck by Elaine Allen is a fun and wonderfully educational picture book for young readers. It takes you and your child through a series of mistaken identities and gently teaches about the wildlife habitat along the Chesapeake Bay region.
The illustrations by Kelli Nash are bright, colourful and full of detail - I especially adorn the one with Mallory asleep under a big purple bloom - fantastic!
This book is a must have for any child's library and will be read for generations to come. Check it out on Amazon, Barnes & Noble or your local book retailer.
I give it two thumbs up!
