Having first come in contact with the creation of author Amy Hest and illustrator Jill Barton in the unfortunate, "You're the Boss, Baby Duck", I wasn't planning on enjoying this companion book in the series. After all, "You're the Boss", wasn't really my cup of tea. Imagine my surprise then when I found "Bad Eyeglasses" to be fairly good.

Poor Baby Duck just hates the rain. Her parents can't understand it, but Grandpa understands, and he knows just what to do to make Baby Duck happy. Amy Hest's witty story is perfectly matched by Jill Barton's bold illustrations. Read full description. See details and exclusions. In The Rain With Baby Duck by Amy Hest (Paperback, 1998). Pre-owned: lowest price.

Jill Barton has illustrated numerous award-winning books for children, such as What Baby Wants by Phyllis Root, and the much-beloved In the Rain With Baby Duck; You're the Boss, Baby Duck!; Off to School, Baby Duck!; and Baby Duck and the Bad Eyeglasses, all written by Amy Hest.

Jill Barton (Illustrator). Summary: The book In the Rain with Baby Duck is about a baby duck and the day it rained

Jill Barton (Illustrator). Baby Duck is resentful of being required to walk through the rain to Grandpa's house for Pancake Sunday, and she resists all her parents' efforts to cheer her up. When they arrive, Grandpa sympathizes with her distress and takes her on an excursion into the attic to look for a tall, green bag, which are found to contain a pair of red boots and matching umbrella. Summary: The book In the Rain with Baby Duck is about a baby duck and the day it rained. A family tradition of going for pancakes might get ruined all because of the rain.

We checked this out of the library today. We've had to read it to our two-year-old son probably 12xs already. It combines two of his big interests -- cooking and trucks. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is lovely. Highly recommend!

FOLLOW UP: We bought this book in hard cover from an independent seller, since the hard cover isn't in print. We received a smaller version of the book that seems to have been put out via a Kohl's fundraising campaign. It is not nearly as nice as the original hard cover version we checkout of the library. Buyer beware / clarify if you are interested in a hard cover copy!

I had to buy this book after my then-4 year old made me check it out from the library 3 times. He calls it "the Sam Cakes book," and whether it is the cozy atmosphere, the warm, encouraging mother, the I-can-do-it-by-myself... with a little help from Mommy, the cake, or the primary colors (likely a combination, right?), he LOVES this book and wants to re-read it again and again. And I truly don't mind, because it's very sweet.

I don't know what it is about this book, but my almost 3 year old boy loves it (and it doesn't even have one dinosaur in it!) We checked it out from the library and renewed it for 2 months, but I finally pried it out of his hands to return it before the late fees mounted- so now I must buy one of our own. The illustrations are bright and attractive making self reading as fun as when mom/dad reads it.

This is my sons favorite book. When i tell him he can do something because he’s a big boy he says “i can do it like Sam?”
I LOVE the other two Sam books, and I really want to love this one, as well. The characters are SO sweet, and the illustrations are beautiful. The adventure, the sharing, and the step-by-step excitement of everyday things are all wonderful.

But the book just sits on our shelf, because it's miserable to read. The same adjectives are repeated over and over, and apparently Sam "whispers" ALL THE TIME. Mrs. Bear says "Of course" too much, the punctuation is stilted and strange, and some of the phrases almost seem to have been written out of order. It's honestly just annoying.

I love the illustrations and the concept, and the characters are already dear to me based on their other books, but something went really wrong with this one.
