Overview

Bernette Ford and Sam Williams’s delightful tale of a toddler’s rite of passage is now available in board—and it even has a fluffy bunny tail on the cover for kids to pet!
First diapers; now bottles: growing up isn’t easy! Adorable Pig and Ducky, who made their first appearance in No More Diapers for Ducky, return for a sequel with an equally appealing new friend. Bunny sucks on his bottle at mealtime, naptime, and playtime. But now he has an invitation to Piggy’s lovely tea party…and no one drinks tea from a bottle! Will Bunny grow up and start using a cup?
Once again Ford and Williams teach their lesson gently, with subtle, graceful writing and thoroughly charming characters.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
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)

Life's arduous transitions are the topic of this quenching sequel to No More Diapers for Ducky! Poor Bunny yearns to accept an invitation to Piggy's elegant tea party, but he's worried that his lifelong addiction to bottles won't allow it. Fortunately, our rabbit hero is able to overcome this very understandable infant addiction. A cheery message about a sometimes difficult rite of passage.
School Library Journal

PreS - Bunny loves his bottle, and he takes it everywhere. When he arrives at Ducky's house, he discovers that she is having a tea party with Piggy. Bunny wants to play with his friends, but he is sucking on his bottle. When he sees his friends drinking from cups, he asks for tea to be poured into his bottle. Ducky refuses, informing Bunny that "Bottles are for babies." The little rabbit realizes that he wants to be a big boy, so he disposes of his beloved object and takes a drink from a bright-red bunny mug. This tough topic is handled subtly but the point is made. Complementing this endearing tale are expressive, bright watercolor illustrations with black outlines that make them jump out from the page, allowing easy sharing during storytime.-Linda Zeilstra Sawyer, Skokie Public Library, IL
