It's a rainy, rainy day, and Baby Duck hates rain. Mrs. Duck says she's never heard of a duck not liking rain. But then Grampa Duck and Baby Duck come down from the attic with a little umbrella and rubber boots that belonged to . . . whom? . . . Mrs. Duck! Baby Duck grabs them up with glee and goes outside to play. This ducky story--wonderfully illustrated with watercolors full of tender expression--will have every puddle-jumper wishing for rain.
