Two Dumb Ducks by Maxwell Eaton III

Eaton III, Maxwell.  Two Dumb Ducks, 32 pages. Knopf Books for Young Readers (Random), 2010.  PICTURE BOOK.  $12.99.  Language-G; Sexual Content-G; Violence-G; Steve and Carl are ducks.  Steve likes cans. Carl likes socks.  But Steve and Carl don’t like being called dumb by seagulls.  Steve and Carl don’t get mad.  Steve and Carl don’t get angry.  Steve and Carl get even, though not in the way they originally intended.  This book could be used in a unit on Anti-Bullying as well as a unit on Emotions.  The characters are adorable and easy to relate to.  My kids enjoyed this book and loved the silly antics of the two ducks and their efforts to solve their problem. EL (K-3)  ADVISABLE.   Reviewer: SL
