Our Score: 4 out of 5 stars

When it comes to kids book anything that is able to be read-aloud and literally rolls off your tongue is good for me. “Peep and Ducky” is very cute and fun. It backs some very colorful and bright illustrations from David Walker. David Martin tells a perfect story for little kids about friendship and does it well that it is able to be enjoyed even for adults with some clever rhyming. This book was originally put on my daughter desk until she gets older (she’s 1) but every day she pulls it out to look through.

Official Premise: Ready, set, go! Whether you’re playing pretend games (beep, beep) or flying off the slide (ka-thump), flopping into a puddle (splish, splash) or running around a tree (“Can’t catch me!”), an afternoon at the park is so much better when your best buddy is there. Peep and Ducky share giggles and tickles and bumps in this sweet excursion from David Martin and David Walker.

David Martin has written many kids books that we have enjoyed including “The Magic Christmas Tree”. David Walker has also illustrated several children’s books, including “Flip, Flap, Fly!”.  I like both their styles and will be keeping an eye out for their upcoming books.  I could also see them turning “Peep and Ducky” into a franchise…may I suggest “Peep and Ducky Go to the Zoo” etc.
