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.

Do something unusual is a good way to make fun. Such as the duck wear socks.

Fun story about a duck who teaches a little girl how to not be so serious! It's a good lesson for a lot of us. ( )

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. ( )

Awesome book, very silly. A very serious girl becomes silly because of the influence of a silly duck. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670061360, Hardcover)

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.
