This is a one to ten counting book. It's time for a swim, but Duckie can't find her ducklings anywhere. Turn the shaped pages, follow Duckie's search through the garden, and count the ducklings as they appear on the cut pages. Luckily, Duckie rounds up her brood just in time for a swim in the pond! It is available for the first time as a paperback. You can watch the ducklings appear one by one on the cut pages until all ten appear. You can count other things in the garden such as snails, sunflowers and strawberries.
"This unusual round-edged book offers very young readers a softer alternative to the average square format, but it's the way the actual story unfolds that will really strike a chord" (Junior)"
