Overview

Sometimes, growing up is hard—but it can be satisfying, too, as the adorable Ducky, Bunny, and Piggy have all learned. Now it’s Lambkin’s turn, in this wonderful new entry in the popular No More! series.

Although little Lambkin has lots of toys, all she really wants is her small, soft, but very dirty comfort blanket. She never lets it go—until Ducky comes over for a play date and gently helps Lambkin give up her beloved blankie and join in the fun.

As always, Bernette Ford and Sam Williams have created a sweet and marvelously illustrated story of friendship that entertains, teaches by example, and encourages children to approach big transitions on their own terms.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—One day Lambkin's friend Ducky comes to visit and decides that they should play laundry day, immediately zeroing in on her friend's much-loved and rather-soiled blanket. Lambkin is none too happy, but she decides it is worth it to play with Ducky. Once the blanket is washed, it's cleaner, but it's also smaller and has some holes. Lambkin is upset, but Ducky surprises her by turning the blanket into a little toy lamb. This is a good story to read to young children when it is nearing the time to give up their blankets, or any little "friend" they are getting too old to carry everywhere. The overall feel is one of gentleness, from the soft style of illustrations to the tone of the dialogue between the two friends. This is a sweet book about two different friendships, one that fades away with age, and one that is strengthened with time and caring.—Kate Neff, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL

Praise for No More Diapers for Ducky!

* “[D]estined to find a permanent place in a child’s library. Ford and Williams tackle this…theme with a freshness apparent in both the language and the artwork…This entertaining tale that teaches by example will be welcomed by adults and youngsters alike.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“…sends a valuable message about children approaching big transitions on their own terms, and the book’s airy design; brief, oversize text; and droll watercolors…are right on target.” —Booklist

 

Praise for No More Pacifier for Piggy!

 

"...the simple text and engaging illustrations will attract the intended audience and should...serve as a conversation starter for adults looking for ways to broach this sticky subject."—School Library Journal
