my daughter's favorite,
This review is from: The Sissy Duckling (Hardcover)
I bought this book before I had a child because it represented some of my core values. Elmer is easy to love, and his fear and confusion over the bullying he receives is evident.
Reading it to my daughter was harder than I expected because I wanted to shield Elmer from the bully's taunt and in some way even shield my daughter from them as well.
Ultimately, like Elmer, it is okay to be afraid, but acceptance of ourselves and kindness to others is most important. So be courageous, read this book to a child, you will be glad you did.
