As Jodie puts the finishing touches on her drawing of a duck, her baby brother takes his very first step.  Meanwhile, people (and animals) all over the city are experiencing their own unique moments at the very same time.  This special book is a simple celebration of the magic of life that is happening all around us each moment of every day…if we’ll only take the time to notice.
