I wrote this book the first summer our daughter was off at sleep-away camp. Only then did it hit me that my nights of singing lullabies were over, which made me sad. One night at dusk I was sitting on our porch in Sag Harbor, looking out at the cove, and I saw a mother duck leading her line of little ones across the water.
I wondered what lullabies she might sing -- er, quack -- to her babies.
