Book One of the Two Jane "I'd Like to Be" Animal Series.
A young girl dreams about being a mallard duck, takes off her red tennis shoes, and dives into a pond. Then the fun begins...complete with "quacking"!
Jane Kauzlarich was a teacher for 36 years...two at Knoxville, Iowa, and thirty-four at Hinton, Iowa. Now she spends her time hiking with her dog, Cisco, writing poetry and children's books, kayaking, and quacking on Lake Minnewashta in the Iowa Great Lakes.
