A little girl rescues a tiny duckling, caring for it through midnight feedings and messy cleanups, playtime and cuddle time in this tender new picture book by Diane Adams ("Two Hands to Love You," etc.). When it's time, the little girl realized that love means letting her feathered companion go, discovering, too, that love remembers, when the now grown-up duck returns for a visit with ducklings of her own. Adams' resonant, rhyming text is complemented by the pen-and-ink, soft watercolor look of Claire Keane's sweet and charming illustrations.
