Emily is a serious. Duck is wacky. When they first meet, Duck is wearing socks, followed by a tie, a cowboy hat, and underwear. Despite herself, Emily can’t help began to smile. Each time Emily questions Duck’s attire, he is always ready with a brief and silly reply as he scurries on his way. The more outlandish is outfits become, the more Emily loosens up. In the end, Emily turns the tables and it is her turn to dress outlandishly and make Duck laugh. This wacky, light hearted provides a great lesson on the benefits of laughter. A wonderful read-aloud for kids of all ages.
Recommended for Preschool and up.
