Product Details

Praise

The couplets make for easy reading, their sing-song quality lending them to large crowds or one-on-one interactions with equal ease. Likewise, the buoyant mixed-media art neatly complements the up-tempo tone. Cute without being cloying, these pudgy feathered stand-ins for child readers are bound to entice small listeners to clamor “Again” when the story’s done.
—Kirkus Reviews

This picture book, starring big yellow Ducky and small blue Peep, is tailor-made for toddlers…The text is bouncy and the mixed-media art, rendered in a cheerful palette, is muted in the background, while the foreground pops with heavily outlined characters.
—Booklist

In the mixed-media illustrations, the two characters are consistent in size and color, and backgrounds show a pleasant park setting.
—School Library Journal

The rhymed verse has a playfulness that echoes the birds’ light rambunctiousness…It’s a quiet but well-observed portrait of a budding friendship.
—Publishers Weekly

[T]he rhyming text is great fun to read aloud—a bonus for adults, who will be asked to read this multiple times, and who won’t mind experiencing this idyllic play date again and again.
—The Horn Book
