Three eggs in a nest begin to wiggle and wobble, until CRACK! CRACK! CRACK! It’s a duck . . . duck . . . DINOSAUR!
This story is in the same vein as the film called Lambert the Sheepish Lion a Disney animated short film that was released in 1952. For those who have never seen the movie, it’s about a lion cub that is mistakenly left with a flock of sheep by a stork and grows up knowing he is quite different from his siblings. In Duck, Duck, Dinosaur, we get to meet Feather, Flap, and Spike. They all hatch together in their eggs, but one of the siblings stands out. While two of the siblings are ducks, Spike is a DINOSAUR! Just like Lambert, this picture book captures your heart when all the siblings make a big splash together. This is the perfect book for all kinds of families, particularly ones that are blended! Just because you may not be blood related, families come in all shapes, sizes, and SPECIES and this playful and clever story has a dino-sized heart. Awwww!
