2.0 out of 5 stars ... after reading about it on a list of books recommended for kids with selective mutism 8 Sep 2014

I purchased this book after reading about it on a list of books recommended for kids with selective mutism. I do not like this book--is is basically about a duck who is too shy to talk, and in turn, is coerced into doing things he doesn't want to because he doesn't speak up. While it eventually has a happy ending, I don't like the message it sends to kids with selective mutism--if you don't speak up, people will bully you around into doing what they want you to. There are much better books out there for kid with selective mutism and/or their classmates. Save your money with this one.

This is s simple story with minimal story line that is perfect for a 3 year old to open up and talk about being shy. There are notes in the back to help parents figure out what questions to ask their child. It hasn't changed my child's shyness, but it has helped identify and understand it for himself better. He will now say from time to time to express his fear, danny duck needs to get his quack back.

2.0 out of 5 stars Danny the Duck 16 Dec 2011
By DLH - Published on
This story is about a duck (Danny) who, for some strange reason, doesn't talk. The other hens and ducks in the yard make fun of him for it. He gets fed up with the ridicule and goes off into the woods to find his quack but instead finds two hungry foxes. The foxes make Danny carry their pot and then fill it with water and only when they try to stick Danny in the pot does Danny magically find his voice. He runs back to the yard to tell the others and they help him run the foxes off.

Really not a fan of this book. The message of the book is confusing and I personally don't appreciate all the examples of bullying. This author has over 100 books on Amazon. Some of them are getting great reviews. Maybe try one of those!
