When the duckfish, for that is what it was, was asked to identify itself, it remained silent. Both tortoise and hare thought that to be most rude, and decided to ignore the uncivil creature and go along their merry way. The story closes with the duckfish merrily swimming in the pond, without a care in the world. A duckfish is happy just to be... it doesn't care what it's called!
This story was good enough for children, I suppose. It had bright colors going for it, and the drawings of the tortoise and the hare made it rather apparent they would be a bit on the arrogant side. I'm not sure there was a lesson to be learned, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with having a children's book just for fun. They neither need nor want to always be learning something, and are quite content just to have a book read to them for fun. "Duckfish" is not bound for any best seller list, but it is fair to say I liked it. I am confident young children will like it, too.
The illustrations are pretty interesting too, the story itself isn't a complicated one, there's not that much text either compared to some of A.J. Cosmo's other picture books. I do think some of the author's other stories are better than this one, and granted a bit more entertaining, but Duckfish does stimulate conversation on how everyone doesn't have to fit into preconceived categories of who or what they are, depending on the age of your audience you could then start talking about race, ethnicity, careers, school social group labelling, whatever the case where not everyone fits neatly under a label and if they don't there's nothing wrong with that either. I can't think of too many other picture books that tackle this subject so I think Duckfish is an important read.
how silly some arguements are. It depicts how two individuals
often perceive things differently. There are also good examples
of controlling one's temper and in being gracious even when
others aren't humble in their attitudes.
This is a fairly easy reader.
