Duck Skates by Lynne Berry; illustrated by Hiroe Nakata (Holt, 
2006).  ISBN: 0805072195

Impressive rhyming text with charming watercolor and ink illustrations 
bring to life five darling ducks who hatch a plan to skate on a snowy 
day.  "Wake up! Wake up!" two ducks shout./"Snow is falling! All ducks 
out!"  Donning new boots and snowsuits, they rush outdoors and tromp "Down 
to the pond for a duck-skate romp." They lace up their skates, then 
stumble, wobble, wiggle, topple, and giggle their way past the NO SKATE 
sign into deep snow where a snowball fight is just too tempting to 
resist.  The fun of a day in deep snow is recapped over "Cake and cocoa, 
milk and pie. " Young readers will love the vibrant and lyrical text read 
aloud and will recognize their own winter fun on every page.  Thoroughly 
charming and delightful, this title is one you won't want to 
miss!  [Suggested ages: 4-8]
