School Library Journal Review

Toddler-PreS-In this third tale about Peep and Ducky, the two friends experience much that a day in the snow has to offer. Rhyming couplets tell the story of an almost idyllic time together. After racing on their sleds, the two decide to build a snowman. When the little birds have a problem with the construction phase, an argument erupts and they throw snow at each other: "Really mad," says Peep. "Monster mad!" says Ducky. And they both start to laugh. Lucky, lucky, lucky." Yellow Ducky and blue Peep never venture far from home as Peep's pink house is visible in the background. When Ducky's Poppa and Peep's Momma arrive, the foursome continue having winter fun. Bright and cheerful mixed media illustrations appear in vignettes, single pages, and spreads. VERDICT This simply told tale of the very best of friends will be understood and enjoyed by the toddler set. A good choice where this series is popular.-Maryann H.
