Meet Katy Duck, a sometimes shy, sometimes brave, not-so-ordinary duck, whose determination and can-do spirit always seems to wing doubts in the opposite direction. Toddlers will relate to Katy's befuddlements, mishaps, and triumphs as she learns to make new friends, stand on her own two feet, and try new things—all of which can be daunting and exhilirating

Overview

Meet Katy Duck, a sometimes shy, sometimes brave, not-so-ordinary duck, whose determination and can-do spirit always seems to wing doubts in the opposite direction. Toddlers will relate to Katy's befuddlements, mishaps, and triumphs as she learns to make new friends, stand on her own two feet, and try new things—all of which can be daunting and exhilirating for this age group.

In this third adventure in the Katy Duck series, this dancing duck learns an important lesson about consideration. Katy's aunt sends her the perfect dance star accessory—a new, pink boa! But as Katy puts herself "center stage," this dance diva learns that doing what she wants may not be what's best for everyone. Perfect for the toddlers, this board book comes with rounded corners.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Capucilli and Cole have a winning combination in their character Katy Duck. In this board book, she has received a colorful boa from her Aunt Ella. It is just what a dance star should wear, and the boa goes everywhere with Katy. It tangles a statue in the museum, causes problems on the playground and truly wreaks havoc at dance school. It is long and gets easily twisted around objects and people. Mr. Tutu must stop the dance class and Katy realizes the error of her ways. She really doesn't need the boa to be a star. The ending is cute, and I am sure kids will enjoy this and the other books about the all-too-human Katy Duck. Cole's pencil illustrations are full of humor, and it is always amazing what he can do with just a few seemingly simple strokes. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

Love these sturdy board books that can be reread over and over again without small fingers inadvertently tearing pages. They can be passed from one child to the next and compared to some children's book are virtually indestructible. So, Katy Duck books will be around for quite a while. The latest, Katy Duck Dance Star, shows an excited Katy receiving a boa from Aunt Ella. It's absolutely gorgeous with every color of the rainbow and Katy can't wait to put it on. Lessons are learned when she doesn't want to take it off but wants to wear it to dance class saying, 'This is what all the dance stars wear.' Just imagine the chaos a long fluffy boa might create in a class of young duck dancers! Youngsters will not only smile at the upsets but also learn lessons in consideration for others and apologizing when it is called for. - Gail Cooke
