      “In The Rain With Baby Duck” is a children’s book authored by Amy Hest and illustrated by Jill Barton. It was published in 1995 by Candlewick Press. It is a large book physically, both tall and wide, but it is not very long. I can be read in about five minutes.

      It is a passable story


      about a baby duck who learns to love the rain.

      Pros: I liked the book to the extent it shows a young duck learning to overcome a fear with the help of a grandparent. Some children are afraid of the rain or of thunderstorms, and it could be helpful to a child to see the baby duck get ...


      • past her fears. The artwork is soft and warm and the book features a lot of full page drawings, which I really liked.

        Cons: The book is a little boring because the only thing that really happens is that the baby duck learns to like the rain. Of course it is a bit weird that she

        is afraid of rain, considering rain is water and she is a duck. A little more action or even snappier dialogue would have helped jazz up the book a bit.

        Overall: The story is sweet and could be helpful to some children, but the story is also dull and not memorable. I give it a 6 out of 10.
