Little One Step
(Candlewick, March 1, 2003)
The inimitable Simon James tells the heartening story of a duckling who makes a very useful discovery - and encourages the most tentative of us to take that first step, no matter how small.What do you do when you’re little and lost and your legs feel all wobbly? For one tiny duckling, the trick is doing "One Step," a surprising technique that enables him to walk under the tallest of trees and across the widest of fields. Using simple language and breezy, expressive illustrations, Simon James speaks directly to the heart of a child and shows that every journey, whatever the length, begins with a single step.
