Bernette Ford has written many books for children, including No More Diapers for Ducky!, No More Bottles for Bunny!, and Ballet Kitty for Boxer Books. A publisher for many years, she now works as a children’s book packager through her company, Color-Bridge Books.From School Library Journal:
PreS—Ducky invites Piggy to play a new game (peekaboo) with her, but the porker's pacifier keeps getting in the way. When he giggles, it falls out of his mouth. When he drops his extra pacifier on the ground and starts to cry, Ducky tells him, "You're missing all the fun." With some encouragement, he leaves his beloved comfort object on the table. At the end of the day, Ducky asks Piggy if he had fun: "'Yes, I did!' Piggy shouts. 'No more pacifier for Piggy!'" The concise text is accessible, and Williams's softly rounded figures on stark white backgrounds are sweet and appealing. The animals, though simply drawn, have expressive faces, and their sorrows and joys are plain to see. However, parents may wonder why these toddlers seem to have no caregivers watching out for them. Children and adults grappling with phasing out pacifiers may also question the speed and apparent ease with which Piggy surrenders his. Nevertheless, the simple text and engaging illustrations will attract the intended audience and should at least serve as a conversation starter for adults looking for ways to broach this sticky subject. Libraries where Ford and Williams's No More Diapers for Ducky! (2006) and No More Bottles for Bunny! (2007, both Boxer Bks.) are popular will want to make a place for this gentle offering.—Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT
