Ricky Van Shelton has created this book about Quaker the duck and his expeditions. In this book Quaker wags his tail like a dog and all the other animals question him about why he does this. The story deals with the fact that it is OK to be yourself even if it is not what others think is "right".

I love this series of books. They are very comical while portraying an important message. Children really seem to enjoy them as well.

I would use this book to teach children how to treat others, as a comical story when learning about ducks, and also when studying about authors (the author of this book is also a singer). ( )

This book is really cute and funny. It teaches you to just be yourself. It is a good lesson to learn, so you could read this at any time in your classroom. It also had great pictures. You could have your students make or draw a duck and say what makes it unique. ( )
