Lulu and the Duck in the Park by Hilary McKay
Lulu and the Duck in the Park is a very cute chapter book. It’s about a girl named Lulu who loves animals so much that she has a house full of them. One day when her class goes to the park to feed the ducks, a disaster happens. Two dogs are loose and running around scaring the ducks during their nesting season. One particular duck, Lulu’s favorite has one egg that isn’t destroyed. Lulu saves it by catching it before it rolls to the concrete and breaks. She takes it to school and keeps it warm throughout the day. At the end of the day the egg hatches. Lulu, her teacher, and her cousin/best friend return the duckling to the mommy. This is a great book for those beginning to read chapter books.
