Dennis and his sister need someone to look after them, wash their feathers and feed them. A grown-up duck called Annie comes to talk with them. ‘I’m scared!’ says Dennis. ‘Who will look after us?’ They go to live on a different pond where they make new friends and are cared for by a duck family.

This vibrant picture book explores what happens to young children who are separated from their birth families and placed in foster care, and helps them express some of the emotions they may be feeling. The simple text and open storyline ensures that Dennis Duckling is a versatile resource that can be used with children in a range of settings and circumstances.

Who is this book for?

This book is ideal for children aged 2–5 years who have left / are leaving their birth families to be cared for by foster parents.

What you will find in this book

Dennis felt a bit sad when his mum and dad had to leave but he was happy they came and he knew they would come again.

Dennis talked to the duck family who were looking after him. He told them about living with his mum and dad and about the things that made him feel sad.

Included is a booklet with notes and questions which are intended to aid and facilitate discussion, with the goal of helping children express their thoughts and feelings about transitions. The suggested questions can be adapted to each child's situation and stage of development.
