Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—A little girl finds a duckling who has wandered away from the park onto the city streets. She takes the baby home to raise. Her new charge requires constant attention—early morning feedings, bathing, and tidying—until the time comes to say goodbye. Realizing that her pet has grown too big for the bath, the girl takes the full-grown duck back to the pond to rejoin its family. Afterward, she misses it and wonders if it remembers her. One day, the duck comes back—with six ducklings of her own. "And love is also watching, waving,/wondering if love remembers you,/and knowing in a happy instant,/that love has lasted…/…and grown some, too." A love poem, an ode to motherhood, this sweet and touching book will speak to children who have or want a pet, as well as to their parents. The illustrations, rendered in Photoshop against a white background, reflect and enrich the text by adding humor: the wide-eyed girl cradling her pillow over her ears to drown out the midnight quacks; frantically chasing the duckling with a towel, bathwater overturned; or hands on hips, with dustpan and brush in front of a mound of sunflower seeds. The endpapers feature pale yellow duckies along with other elements from the story, such as a tub, a tree, a bag of seed, etc. VERDICT A tender choice for sharing with children and parents, especially on Valentine's Day.—Barbara Auerbach, New York City Public Schools

5.0 out of 5 stars The sweetest book there ever was...
By Disneymama28 on March 20, 2021
This is a children’s story but it’s touching and meaningful, no matter your age. The storyline is precious, and very heartwarming. I definitely shed a tear or two while reading this to my daughter. The illustrations are beautiful, I would just love to display this book forever in my daughters room because it’s so pretty to look at. The book quality itself is great! I should note that the book is hardcover, but the only illustration on the outside is that which is on the jacket/sleeve. The actual book has no imagery on the outside so please treat the book jacket gently if you’d like it to stay on! I bought two copies — one for my daughters Valentine’s Day basket, and one for our friends’ daughter who is just a few months older. She actually resembles the little girl in the book, so it made it even more special to gift. I highly recommend this book to everyone! Definitely a must-have!

Reviewed in Spain on August 2, 2018
Conocí el cuento a través de la cuenta de Instagram de la ilustradora y me pareció una belleza. La sobrecubierta es de papel con las letras del título en relieve y la encuadernación del cuento es de tapas duras, de textura rugosa y de color amarillo, lo cual me parece un acierto, le da un aspecto de diseño antiguo. El tema que trata el cuento es una preciosidad, te explica el amor maternal desde el punto de vista de la relación entre la niña y su patito.
