Pick from that big set of deer tracks or from that shadow of the forest, the ever-so elusive wolf.

Continue until you have sealed the entire opening. For example, my requirements for a duck house included: There are no professional carpentry skills required, unless you’re a perfectionist. (But from one recovering perfectionist to another: Leave it at the door.) Imperfections can be fun, and trust me, as long as the house is safe, your ducks won’t care if it’s immaculate.

Back and rump are a rich bronze-green and the sides are pale buff. The children absolutely loved this story, and I really liked reading it to them because the story lends itself well to some interesting conversations with the children about how Farmer Duck was feeling at various points throughout the story, and why.
