9781897550250: Lemon the Duck

This gorgeous picture book is based on the inspirational story of Lemon the Pekin duck (as seen on MSNBC and in TIME for Kids), who was born in an elementary school classroom. Neurological issues make Lemon unable to walk, but with the support of a compassionate teacher and her students, Lemon is still able to become one happy duck! In the story, Ms. Lake and her class conduct an egg-hatching project in school and on the big day, welcome four little ducklings into the world. The students soon realize that the soft yellow one they named Lemon looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, but can't stand up and walk like a duck. They worry that Lemon won't be happy if she can't do all the things ducks love to do, and work together to help Lemon thrive. Through caring for Lemon, the students share her in victories and learn that acceptance, love, and extra special care can go a long way. They also come to understand that her difference doesn't make Lemon any less special. To learn more about Lemon, visit www.lemontheduck.com.

Review:

.,." a tale of hope and love ... This book deserves a place of honor on every children's bookshelf."

.,." a joyful and thought-provoking book for all ages about how animals can cope with serious handicaps ... It's inspiring on the human side, too ... Backman and her students show how far love can go." -- Bob Tarte

"It teaches not only about egg to duckling development but also about animals (and people) who are different and have special needs ... a truly heart-warming story with lovely illustrations that I highly recommend."

"Backman has done an incredible job ... She has crafted a book where much can be learned about not only the basic development of 'oviparous animals, ' but more importantly the value of an individual with special needs ... Lemon the Duck supports primary curriculum and teachers might use this book with children to show a 'safe way' to talk about disabilities ... delightfully well-written, with excellent illustrations, and a variety of purposes in a classroom."
