Rating: 4.5 – a cute book about being yourself
Opinion: This is another classroom must. It’s a very cute book about a cat who grew up with ducks and thinks he’s a duck. When he learns he’s a cat, he learns how to be a cat. But he learns how he can be a cat and a duck. Quackers learns to how to be true to himself. I’ve read this book with the older kids at work and they love it. They think it’s kinda funny that there’s a cat who thinks he’s a duck. It’s a good lesson for all kids to learn, too. They learn that it’s okay to be yourself. It’s a great addition to any classroom.
