About the Author:

Augusta Goldin, author of Ducks Don't Get Wet, was formerly a teacher. She won the Long Island University's Presidential Award for science education in 1986. She lives in Paramus, NJ.

Helen K. Davie's lovely watercolors have appeared in many children's books, including What Lives in a Shell? by Kathleen Weidner Zoehfield, and Animals in Winter by Henrietta Bancroft and Richard G. Van Gelder. She lives in Templeton, CA.

From Booklist:

This well-designed book from the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series introduces wild ducks: their diet, swimming prowess, migration habits, and preening, which allows them to swim and dive in water and to fly through rainstorms without getting wet. The text is well focused throughout and discusses the habits of several types of wild ducks, always returning to the book's main point, "ducks don't get wet." Notable for its clarity, subtlety, and beauty, the artwork illustrates the text with precision and imagination. In a scene showing a duck pursuing fish underwater, minor gradations in the hue and brushstroke of the predominantly grayish-green watercolors indicate the speed of the diving duck as well as the depth of the water. The illustrations, pencil drawings tinted with watercolor washed and highlighted with pastels, not only show the variety of types of ducks and their activities but also the changing landscape in different seasons and at different times of day. Best of all, they inspire a sense of awe in observing nature. The last pages offer activities related to the theme as well as lists of Web sites and picture-book stories about ducks. A unusually handsome addition to a reliable series. Carolyn Phelan
