05 Duck in a Cup - Written by Susan Spelic and Illustrated by Cassandra Storm D.

Duchess is a proud duck who loves her seven little ducklings.
They all waddle up the street to visit Granny.
What happens when the littlest duckling goes missing?
Will they find the duckling?

‘Duck in a Cup’ has language that helps to teach the short ‘u’ sound as in the words; ‘Duck, ducklings, up, cup, Mum and us’.

At The Reading Mountain, we aim to empower, support and engage young reluctant and dyslexic readers as they learn to read.
