Have You Seen My Ducking? by Nancy Tafuri is a Caldecott Honor Book from 1985.

Young children love any game or story that has a kind of "hide and seek" or "peek-a-boo" feel. This book is about a mother duck who has lost one of her ducklings. She searches all over and asks a beaver, a turtle, fish and other ducks if they have seen her duckling. Turtle brings back her duckling, and everything is OK.

Children also love stories about mommies and their babies and knowing that mommies will do anything to protect their babies.
