PreSchool-K–An irresistible yellow duckling wakes up, brushes her fuzzy feathers, dives into the pond for breakfast, and spends a pleasant day frolicking with her friend Frumity Frog. As evening approaches, Dimity's tail begins to droop and she heads for home, where she dons her nightgown, plumps her pillows, and settles comfortably into her cozy nest. Yolen's simple rhythmic language will have young listeners bouncing in their seats: Dimity Duck waddles,/she toddles off to eat./Wiggle-waggle goes her tail/and pump! go her feet. The text curves gracefully across the pages, and the words are cleverly arranged to reflect the actions they describe: whoosh! arches up as if propelled by a strong breeze and dips angles down to mimic Dimity's body position (tail to the sky and head beneath the water). The charming illustrations smoothly blend textures and muted pastel hues to create a soft-as-down quality that brings the duckling–and her world–vividly to life. Single- and double-page paintings alternate with smaller vignettes and sequenced images of Dimity in action. White backdrops keep the layout crisp and inviting and make the warm yellows and deep greens seem all the more luminous. A delightful storytime choice.–Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal
