Old pigeon, when will you learn to ask for things politely... If only you could be more like the duckling who asks for a cookie politely. fun story about a duckling who gets a cookie and the jealous pigeon, perfect for reading aloud to kids. ( )

When the pigeon sees that the duckling has a cookie, and got it simply by asking ("Politely!"), he gets jealous and angry. He rants about all the times he's asked for things, referencing the other books in the series. The duckling then says he actually got the cookie for the pigeon, and asks for another for itself. It's cute, funny, and ridiculous, another great Mo Willems book. ( )

I liked this story a lot, it was a very cute plot and sent a good message. The writing was simple but well-done and the illustrations fit very well with the story. The plot focused around manners and friendship and involved two characters, a duckling and a pigeon. The duckling taught the pigeon how to politely ask for something and showed the pigeon that by asking nicely, you can receive what you want. For example, the pigeon wanted to cookie that the duckling had and yelled at the duckling so the duckling did not give him the cookie. However, after asking in a polite manner the duckling gratefully shared his cookie. This is an awesome message to send to young children and the plot definitely teachers a good lesson. Another impressive thing about this book is the way the author wrote in such a simple way but still got the message across. There were only a few words on most pages and these words were straightforward and easy for a young reader. The illustrations of the duckling and the pigeon arguing over the cookie added a great visual element to the story and I really enjoyed them. In conclusion I think this was a great, simple story targeted at a younger age-group. ( )

The Duckling gets a cookie by Moe Wilis
Audio children's book about a pigeon and he's angry that the duckling gets a cookie by asking nicely.
Pigeon asks for a lot of things and he never gets them. The duckling explains how he can get a cookie himself.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

I really love this book. The big idea of the book is sharing your cookie and interacting with the reader. I think it is adorable and perfect for reader interactions.For example, the duckling asks the reader for a cookie and after he asks, he gets a cookie on the next page. I feel this is a great aspect to the book because it allows the reader to get involved and enjoy the story. The reader can begin to act out and talk to the characters as well. I also liked how the author over exaggerated the emotions of the upset and jealous pigeon. The reaction of the pigeon is hilarious and keeps the reader engaged in debating if they should give the pigeon a cookie. For example, The pigeon says "I ASK ALL THE TIME!' The use of bold font, large print, and dramatic illustrations of the pigeon shows the range of emotions he is going through. ( )
