Lulu and the Duck in the Park

7 word review: Animal-loving Lulu finds a duck egg.

First in a series starring Lulu.  Realistic fiction set in England.  Share with ages 5-8.

Lulu loves animals.  Her teacher does not.  During a trip to the park, an accident causes a duck egg to roll away from its nest.  Lulu, the only one who sees this, must act fast: she rescues the egg and brings it to school, figuring that it will hatch later.  (Spoiler alert: it hatches at school!)  Beautifully accessible to younger readers, with generous margins, readable font, and black/white illustrations throughout.
