It’s My Pond
Publisher: Book Island
A little yellow duck finds a beautiful pond and claims it for himself. Then he is joined by a white duck, so they split it in two. When a red duck comes along, they split it in three - and so on until the pond has been divided into tiny spaces, all filled with ducks sitting still. When a black duck comes along, he suggests they all share the pond and have fun instead, which is great… Until a hippo shows up!
This book is a beautiful and enjoyable read. It teaches children the importance of sharing rather than selfish hoarding, and the vibrant illustrations invite young readers to identify the different colours, as well as count the ducks.
