In this Little Golden baby book, learn counting and explore a farm with the Fuzzy Duckling!
Early one morning, a small fuzzy duckling goes for a walk around the farm. Who will he meet along the way? Two frisky colts, three baby calves. . . . Little readers everywhere will love following the duckling and counting his new animal friends. Simple words and adorable, classic illustations from the legendary Alice and Martin Provensen make this book as perfect a gift today as it was when it was first published in 1949.
