I Wish That I Had Duck Feet

A daydreaming boy imagines I wish that I had duck feet or a whale spout or an elephant’s nose! But after imagining all the advantages, the boy also wisely imagines the disadvantages. In this playful story by Dr. Seuss (writing as Theo. LeSieg), readers learn to look at both sides to decide what’s best.

Tie-in Activity: Teach your baby that all feet don’t look alike by pointing out different kinds of feet on animals in books. Or paste a copy of your child’s picture to a piece of paper, and encourage him to add animal features he might wish to have.
