All Ducks Are Birds

Tara was inspired by her son, Bryton, to write All Ducks Are Birds when, on a walk to Monocacy Creek, he asked the question, "Are all birds ducks?" This question led to answers that produced only more questions, piquing his curiosity not just about the characteristics of ducks but their relationship to their birdness as well as to other water fowl.

All Ducks Are Birds is Tara’s debut self-published work, sure to delight children with the colorful illustrations and the silly syllogisms common in philosophical logic. All children notice similarities and differences. To put these observations in a logical frame work is a higher order of thinking cultivated through the patterns of reasoning a child would use to deduce that similar qualities do not necessarily make all things the same. Not all birds are ducks.
