Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—A fearful duckling refuses learn to swim. "I told you once. I told you twice. I don't like to get wet." His parents exhibit patience and understanding, and, finally, with his siblings' encouragement, he takes the plunge. The stunning photos of the duck family on each page are delightful, particularly the full-page shots of the determined protagonist. Children will breathe a sigh of relief when he finally does what a duck does and takes pride in his accomplishment: "I can swim!" The colorful spreads, with one sentence per page, make this a winner for group and one-on-one sharing as well as for beginning readers. Sure to delight any animal lover or reluctant child needing the confidence to try something new.—Susan Mcclellan, Coraopolis Memorial Library, PA

Review

"I can't contain my enthusiasm for Swim, Duck, Swim. At first reading, I squealed quite loudly in response to the charming photographs of a stubborn duckling that has no intentions of learning to swim. Then I had to make sure all that my coworkers saw the book and fully appreciated its charm. It's not difficult to see that this is a uniquely appealing picture book."

Virginia Beach Public Library Staff Picks


Eleven of the Best Preschool Picture Storytime Books of 2014 (so far)

"Clever, adorable photographs enhance this thoroughly engaging story of a little duckling who does not want to swim. Children love it when the little quacker finally takes a plunge, leading to a joyous ending."

ALSC Blog/The Official Blog of the Association for Library Service to Children

"Even if the text weren't wonderful and so well suited to pre-schoolers, and the message SO appropriate for the age level, Murray Head's photographs would make this book a gem for me.  The enchanting close-up photographs are full-page with the large-size text imposed over the top.  It's not easy to choose a favorite as these wonderful pictures of the duck family would win over the hardest of hearts.  This book is the definition of cute!"
