This book has charming illustrations and contains interesting facts about ducks, as told by a young girl who is the narrator. I would love it... if only the author did not describe duck mating pairs as "boyfriend and girlfriend" (they are not humans!) and then immediately go on to mention how male mallards sometimes get too excited and physically attack/gang up on female mallards. It's duck mating behavior, not girlfriend and boyfriend behavior... this feels significant to note, and makes it the kind of book I would not leave on a shelf for a child to read uncritically. ( )

Just Ducks by Nicola Davies is a great informational text that teachers could use when teaching about ducks. This is a fun-filled, wonderfully illustrated book that allows children to learn facts about all kinds of ducks: where they live, what they eat, and a number of other facts. I would recommend this book to anybody, not just teachers. All children would benefit from the facts that this book has to offer about ducks. ( )

This book should almost be nonfiction instead of fiction... In fact I'm not sure why it's not. There's very little story, and mostly just educational text about ducks. Nice illustrations, but not super engaging. ( )

Sweet children's book which teaches you all about mallard ducks, entwined in a narrative about living in a city. ( )

Easily one of the best Davies books I've read in quite a while. Loved it. ( )
