Children's Books
Id like to get some books for my niece for her 1st birthday coming up in October. She loves her stuffed otter Ollie, so Im wondering if anyone knows any children books about otters (yes, I know its random).

She is also obsessed with ducks, everything is duck this and duck that. Id like to get her a duck book too. She already has Make Way for Ducklings but do any of you have suggestions for others?

Thanks!

I just searched on Amazon for otter books...there are some cute ones on there!! I don't know how any of them are, but this one looks cute.

And there are other duckling books out there. I just bought a duckling board book for my nephew-to-be, but I can't think of what it's called. I found it in a WaldenBooks. You can also search "duckling" on Amazon.

Reading is sooo important and how wonderful of you to start her early.

My all time favorite book is Seuss's McElligot's Pool. A little boy sits down to fish and his imagination runs wild about what is in the pond that he might catch.

Let's see - The Ugly Duckling, Are You My Mommy by Carla Dijs is about a chick looking for his mother, Goodnight Moon, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Brown Bear Brown Bear What do You See?

This is for older kids, but it popped up when I put in Ollie Otter. So cute!

I love the Little Quack stories by Lauren Thompson...they are a fun read for my little girl (to listen to)
Her favorite is Little Quack's New Friend...

Also Karma Wilson has some cute little books out with a bear...

The Bear snores on is both kid's favorite here...

At 1 year old, board books are good. My 10-month old newphew LOVES "Brown Bear, Brown Bear", "Good Night Moon", "The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear", and others like that. Books where the pages can be turned quickly and the child can "point to the duck" or identify things are really good for that age, too. If she likes animals, there will be books like that for identifying animals (and making animal sounds), as well as ones for shapes, trucks, etc.

For Duck books, you HAVE to look at "Click Clack Moo Cows that Type" and "Giggle Giggle Quack" and that series. Yes, the first one is about cows, but the duck starts the whole thing http://www.amazon.com/Click-Clack-Mo...8236542&sr=8-1

I love "Click Clack Moo"! She might be a little young for this, but when I was learning to read, I loved Oscar Otter. It's really cute. [/color]

Well looks like I'll have to check out Click, Clack, Moo and Brown Bear Brown Bear. With all of these suggestions there's so many I want to look at, they're all so fun! I'm going to have to make a trip to Borders to check them out then place an order on Amazon.

Little Quack!!! That's the one I was trying to think of earlier!! And Click, Clack Moo (and the "sequels") are all very funny.

My daughter is 15 months - she loves any Eric Carle book, and Sandra Boynton. And ditto the others on Click Clack Moo - my son has that book, and both kids like it. Its funny enough that I don't mind reading it again and again, and the kids like the pictures
