It was springtime on a farm in the hills and Edith and Little Bear were thrilled to see the ducks and geese floating on the pond. They were waiting as patiently as they knew how, for a mother duck's eggs to hatch. They visited the nest every day. One day, though, when they checked the nest, they found the mother was gone. Mr. Bear knew that something must have happened to her and she would not be back. So it was up to Edith and the Bears to try to hatch the eggs. Carefully, they moved the nest to the house, kept the eggs warm, and sure enough, one little duckling was born. How Edith and the Bears care for the duckling until it grows big enough to care for itself is an enchanting experience for all.show more

About Dare Wright

Dare Wright (1914-2001) was a fashion model and photographer based in New York City. In 1957, she used her childhood doll Edith and two teddy bears as the subjects of her first book The Lonely Doll. The combination of mesmerizing black and white photographs and simple, eloquent text made the book an immediate success and earned it a place on The New York Times Best Seller list along with Dare Wright's next Lonely Doll book, Holiday For Edith And The Bears. Edith And The Duckling is the tenth book in the series featuring Edith, Little Bear and Mr. Bear. Originally published in 1981, it was photographed in the countryside near Walton, New York, where lakes, ponds and streams entice ducks and bears alike. All of the photographs in this book have been reproduced from Dare Wright's original negatives that she developed in the tiny darkroom of her New York City apartment.show more
