Emily is a serious girl. She enjoys serious things like bird-watching, math, and playing the cello. But one day while she?s taking a walk, Emily runs into Duck, who is anything but serious . . .

?Duck,? asked Emily. ?What are you wearing??
?Socks!? yelled Duck.
?Ducks don?t wear socks,? replied Emily seriously.
?Cold feet!? yelled Duck, and off he went.

Through a series of humorous run-ins, Duck teaches Emily the importance of laughing?especially at oneself. A witty and comical debut picture book, this hilariously illustrated story will have readers laughing along with Emily.

This is a book that you might have to read more than once to children so they can really grasp the concept of accepting others who are different. That is is OK to standout in a crowed and that when you start to learn about others you might end up learning about yourself. Read full review

This book is so cute and the 1st graders loved it! I would consider this book to be a fantasy book because ducks don't talk. Read full review
