Katy Duck gets a beautiful boa. She decides she wants to wear it for the day. Her Mother suggests she leave it at home, but she wears it anyway. The story shows how her boa bothers other people. She finally realizes it in her dance class and apologizes for ruining everyone else’s dancing.
This is a story filled with teaching opportunities, including helping young children understand that their actions do have consequences.
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.
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.
This is a book for toddlers and preschoolers about saying your sorry.
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.

Read with 4-year-old girl.
Borrow. Your library should definitely have this book. I would not buy it for a home library as the story is so short and there is no surprise after reading it once.
