Moore, Eva, and Nancy Carpenter. Lucky Ducklings. New York: Orchard Books, 2013.
How a mama duck takes care of her ducklings, the author relates that to how enforcement take care of others too. Showing that caring for others is important through this story about a mama duck and her ducklings. The author keeps the story entertaining, saying many times, "that could have been the end." Then finally, at the end stating that the end of the story has actually came to an end. They illustrations are very real life and colorful. Great facial expressions in many of the people in the story. Overall, they were excellent. I would recommend to use this book with smaller children when talking about how law enforcement is helpful. Relating this to how kind the mama duck was in showing children that police and others are nice people. Age ranges to which this book would appeal: first grade to third grade.
