Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
Once again Yolen has produced a beautifully written story that is sure to delight young children. Her choice of language so aptly describes Dimity and her actions that children will be entranced. Dimity waddles, toddles, and wiggle-waggles through her day. With her friend, Frummity Frog, they go splishy-splashy and play hide-and-seek in the pond from early morning until evening. As the frog babbles and bubbles, Dimity is so worn out that her tail droops. She blows kisses to her friend and waddles home. Once there she gets into her nightgown and, book in hand, toddles off to bed. Illustrations in soft pastel shades of blue, yellow, and pink are accented by the deep green of the frog and all the water plants. This book is a perfect blend of words and pictures, guaranteed to be a hit for story time with preschoolers, kindergarteners, and even first graders.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-An irresistible yellow duckling wakes up, brushes her fuzzy feathers, dives into the pond for breakfast, and spends a pleasant day frolicking with her friend Frumity Frog. As evening approaches, Dimity's tail begins to droop and she heads for home, where she dons her nightgown, plumps her pillows, and settles comfortably into her cozy nest. Yolen's simple rhythmic language will have young listeners bouncing in their seats: "Dimity Duck waddles,/she toddles off to eat./Wiggle-waggle goes her tail/and pump! go her feet." The text curves gracefully across the pages, and the words are cleverly arranged to reflect the actions they describe: "whoosh!" arches up as if propelled by a strong breeze and "dips" angles down to mimic Dimity's body position (tail to the sky and head beneath the water). The charming illustrations smoothly blend textures and muted pastel hues to create a soft-as-down quality that brings the duckling-and her world-vividly to life. Single- and double-page paintings alternate with smaller vignettes and sequenced images of Dimity in action. White backdrops keep the layout crisp and inviting and make the warm yellows and deep greens seem all the more luminous. A delightful storytime choice.-Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Can't put it down

    Our 14 mth old loves this book! We got it from the library and he can't put it down. If he even see's the binding hidden then he has to read it, over and over and over. It will probably be on his Christmas wish list!
