An adorable duckling imparts bite-sized lessons in this picture book about getting the most out of life. Meticulous grayscale illustrations—with the exception of the duckling’s yellow beak—use rings of tree stumps to portray the potential fruits of imagination cut short by worry, while a bed of heart-shaped leaves supports the lesson: “If in doubt, love more.” Heartfelt and heartwarming, there is no age limit on the advice in these pages.
