Baby Duck is mad because she has to go through the rain to get to her grandparents’ house. While her parents love the rain, Baby hates the wet and the mud and everything about it. When they reach her grandparents’ house, her grandfather surprises her with something that her mother used to have: rain boots and an umbrella! Now baby duck can enjoy the rain.
This book is good for talking about adapting to situations that students do not like. If they don’t like to do homework, why don’t they listen to music while they work?
