Summary
Baby Duck experiences the fear of the first day of school, but with a little help from Grampa, everything turns out okay in the end
Summary
Despite her mother's declaration that she is "big and brave," Baby Duck is nervous about the first day of school. While her entire ducky family rallies in an attempt to convince Baby that everything will be alright, it is the intervention of wise, empathetic Grampa that finally reassures her. Grampa goes straight to the source, asking the teacher, Miss Posy, point-blank if she's mean and whether songs (which Baby Duck loves) are sung at school. Satisfied with Miss Posy's answers and freed from fear, Baby Duck learns that school can be fun! -- Description by Ellen Foreman
