Little Kid Reaction

My daughter loved the story, especially the beautiful boa that is on every page. This is a book that she picked and wanted to read again. She noticed that the boa was bothering the other animals and was getting in their way.

Parent Reaction

I enjoyed the story and pictures. I liked that the duck learned a lesson about listening to her Mother. I also liked that the duck apologized to her friends. I was not surprised my daughter liked the book, I could see it on her face when she saw the cover.

Type of Book:
This is a book for toddlers and preschoolers about saying your sorry.
Educational Themes:

This book will help kids understand that parents sometimes say "no" for a reason. It also has an important lesson about listening, feelings, and that it is good to apologize when we can see we are hurting or bothering someone else.
