A GOOD DAY FOR DUCKS: BOOK & DUCK CALL
Author: Ducks Unlimited
Publisher: GLOBE PEQUOT ( THE LYONS PRESS, FALCON), Oct 2003
DU's exciting new picture book & authentic Greenwing duck call make a winning combo for getting kids actively involved in the outdoors. Foul weather won't stop Justin from enjoying his first trip to his grandpa's duck hunting camp. 9x11 inches, 32 pgs.
Foul weather won't stop Justin from enjoying his first trip to his grandpa's duck hunting camp. In fact, cold and rain take on new meaning in this delightful storybook that offers children keen insights into what it means to be an active participant in the natural world.
It's fall in the suburbs, and as Justin gazes out passively at his cold, rainy, gray neighborhood, he bemoans the fact that the weather's bad and there's nothing to do. All that changes when Grandpa shows up the next weekend and takes Justin to his duck cabin in the north woods. There the boy discovers the joys of becoming what Thoreau called "a sojourner in nature," an active participant in the natural world.
When Justin finally returns home, he takes back with him life lessons that he will never forget. He has learned how ducks migrate from north to south in the fall, and from south to north again come spring. He has learned about the need to conserve wet places-the lakes, ponds, and marshes-where ducks are found. He has discovered his own heritage, and the ties that bind one generation to the next. And most important, he has begun to see the world in a whole new way.
