big apple books: a duck in new york city
I love Little Duck's tenacity and positive outlook, and appreciate that Kaldor's tale is about overcoming your fears to strike out into the unknown. I had a lot of the same feelings when I first moved to New York City, but looking back, I'm so glad I was able to make my dream a reality, too.
The added bonus to A Duck in New York City is that it comes with a cd of original tunes! Connie Kaldor, in addition to author, is also a Canadian folk singer/songwriter, and the songs are a great accompaniment to her original story.
A duck with a dream; you gotta love it.
