Is It Any Good?

Baby Duck has the sort of life that we would all like for our young children; her world is safe and orderly yet stimulating, and she is loved by everyone around her. Her story is written for preschool-age children with an emphasis on their interests and concerns. While the story is quite simple, the characters and details seem authentic. For example, when baby Duck decides to draw a picture, she slides off of the chair. That is just what a tiny child must do because the floor is far below.

Using only dots for eyes and the requisite duck bills for mouths, the illustrator successfully imbues the faces of the characters with a full range of emotions. In addition, the pastel-shade watercolor art is carefully rendered and cheerful. Young children will identify with and enjoy the quiet day with Baby Duck and her Grandpa.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
