Sometimes you can be your own best friend.

Ducky wants to enjoy the beautiful day,
but he can’t find a friend who has time to play.

Every parent who has heard their child say, “There’s no one to play with,” will nod their head with understanding delight as Ducky discovers his new friend. Even the youngest children will figure out what’s really happening long before Ducky does in this lyrical story that’s sure to leave them smiling. Along the way they too will discover that being “just Ducky” is just ducky fun.
