On Duck Pond by Jane Yolen illustrated by Bob Marstall

Told in first person
A boy walks with his dog to a pond where the wildlife and serene atmosphere are disrupted by a wide variety of ducks coasting onto its surface.
The rhyming, simple text make it appealing to younger listeners.
My sons and I enjoyed finding the variety of wildlife in each illustration.
The back of the book contains a few pages of additional facts about pond habitats, the different ducks featured in the book, and the wildlife in and around the pond.
Apparently this book is a sequel to a book this team wrote/illustrated called On Bird Hill.  I will need to borrow, read and review it.
-Borrowed from the library.
