This is an editorial 5 STAR BOOK review from READERS FAVORITE!

Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite

Ducky Duck Doesn't Want to be a Duck by Jenny Loveless is about a duck who wants to be anything else but a duck. Together with his friends, Ducky goes through different identities in a humorous little adventure.

What an excellent book for children. I read it with my 6-year-old niece and 8-year-old nephew. They both love the fact that there are colorful, big pictures on each page and that the texts are just the right amount with just the right size. The prose is straightforward and easy for the kids to read or learn to read. In fact, my lovely niece requested that I include this book as one of her regular bedtime stories.

Behind this funny, colorful, and imaginative story is an imperative and deep message for the children: learn to love and accept yourself. Brilliant work from author Jenny Loveless. She definitely knows how to write for children and make them love her stories.  I am happy to recommend this book to any parents who want to make sure that their children are entertained and educated at the same time. I am going to check out Jenny Loveless' other works and I am planning to make her books as the primary fun-learning source for the children.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Book with Wonderful Illustrations September 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a very well written, fun book for children. The illustrations are beautiful. My favorite picture was the rabbit ears made out of leaves. The book assures children that it is okay to want to try different things. Sometimes you have to try things for yourself to realize that the grass is not always greener on the other side. Having a supportive mother like Ducky's is very important, too. Although my children have been grown up for years, the parenting tips included in the book seem like very good advice for today's busy parents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life's Little Lesson! October 6, 2013
Ducky Duck by Author Jennifer Loveless

"Ducky Duck" is a delightful children's book that teaches a very valuable lesson. Ducky Duck decides he wants to be a different creature because he is not content with who he is. First he chooses to be just like Benny the bunny because he seems to be having so much fun. Mother Duck says it is fine with her as long as he is home by dark. Ducky Duck proceeds to make himself some long ears and enjoys his time with Benny playing hide and seek, however, his fake ears seem to get in his way.

Upon his return home, he then wants to engage in some duck like activities with his family. Mother Duck gently reminds him that he is now a bunny and can no longer enjoy his usual fun in the water because bunnies don't swim. This does not seem to deter him in his quest to be someone other than himself. Ducky Duck continues to be dissatisfied with a duck's life and decides to be a beaver like Beavis. He works side by side with Beavis the beaver building a dam all day long. It is very tiring and not much fun at all. When he returns home before dark, once again Mother duck gently reminds him that as a beaver he cannot engage in his former duck activities.

It appears that Ducky Duck has yet to learn his lesson because the very next morning he chooses to be like Donnie the deer. Ducky Duck soon realizes no matter how hard he tries he cannot jump up high in quite the same manner as these other animals so naturally do. Ducky Duck finally comes to the conclusion that he is much better off being the duck that he is and doing the things that only ducks can enjoy.

Talented Author Jennifer Loveless has done a great job in this children's book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, excellent, excellent!!! January 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ducky Duck Doesn't Want to be a Duck by Jenny Loveless is an excellent children's book. It is ideal for reading to small children and makes the perfect beginning reader. The illustrations are well done and really contribute to the telling of the story.

In addition to telling a wonderful story, Ms. Loveless provides a series of parenting tips as a bonus to the book. Combine the compelling storyline of Ducky, the beautiful artwork with the bonus tips on building your child's self esteem and you have an out of sight winner.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is 2 in 1 :) January 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first part presents a great story with ducks that has very good illustrations. The story could easily inspire your children and make them accept themselves as they are...

The second part is just for parents. There are more than 30 tips you can use to empower your child to have more self esteem and realize that he is a powerful human been!

What I didn't liked in this book... Nothing. I have nothing to say bad about this book!

A bit about Jenny:
✽❀✽❀ Jenny Loveless was born in Saint Louis Missouri in 1977. When she was three years old she was adopted to a family in California where she was raised by her adoptive mother Connie. Before being adopted, Jenny started out as one of Connie's Daycare children. She eventually went on to stay with Connie, being raised inside the In Home Daycare where she attained the experience of working with children as she grew. "When I was in high school, I wasn't allowed to hang out with my friends in the summer or after school. It was straight home to help my mom with the Daycare kids," Jenny says.
When Jenny grew to adulthood, she continued working with children in several other In Home Daycares and also as a nanny for several years. Since she has had her own three children, she has decided to stay home and put all of her time and focus into her own family. Jenny Loveless enjoys what she does as a homemaker, however she misses the opportunity to be a part of the development of other children. To continue to be of service to others, Jenny has gone on to write four inspirational children's books, all with valuable life lessons to help inspire children to believe in themselves, and their dreams. These books are all in the making at the moment, but will be coming to Amazon and Kindle soon.
Jenny has several dreams of her own on her list of goals. One, is to do influential seminars in high schools and teach students to continue believing in their goals, and use perseverance to achieve them. Jenny would also like to someday donate $100,000 or more to public schools and libraries, and be awarded a Pulitzer Prize. She firmly believes that focus, perseverance, and belief in ones self and their dreams can accomplish anything. Good luck Jenny, we hope to see you win the next Pulitzer Prize!

Note from Jenny Loveless:

"Come join me on my journey to success! I believe we can all do it, and believe me, I can use all the support I can get. On my journey I will hit road bumps, but I will get around them. I will hit walls, but I will climb them. I will fall, but I will get back up. Come follow me on my bumpy journey to the top. You may see me fail, but if I do, I will brush myself off and try again."
