    One thought on “Duck, Duck, Porcupine!”

    1. A friend's daughter read this book to me so I'm counting it towards my 2017 reading challenge. :p It has three adorable stories following the lovable characters Big Duck, Little Duck, and Porcupine, and is complete with bright, distinctive artwork. Would recommend.

    2. I received my copy of Duck, Duck, Porcupine! free through the First Reads program. It feels obvious to me that this is a book in the grand tradition of Arnold Lobel's Frog and Toad, but I suppose it's not so obvious to people who haven't read those books. I suggest that the uninitiated read Arnold Lobel's classic series, the platinum standard to which all easy readers about friendship are held, to get a full appreciation of the way Salina Yoon evokes the same feeling of close, unconditional fri [...]

    3. Two ducks and a porcupine three best friends! Big Duck has big ideas. Porcupine is fretful. But Little Duck who doesn't have much to say (actually he never speaks) has the common sense to play in the rain, go to the party, and roast the marshmallows. Little Duck doesn't overthink things, love his expressions though.

    4. Cute early reader. Works as a read aloud or for a young child to read to you. Simple illustrations and humorous text made this a book I enjoyed.

    5. First sentence: This is the perfect day for a picnic, Porcupine! Premise/plot: Duck, Duck, Porcupine is the first book in a new early reader series starring Big Duck, Little Duck, and Porcupine. There are three short adventures in this one. The first is "A Perfect Day for a Picnic." Little Duck is the first to notice that it will soon be RAINING. But will a little rain--or a lot of rain--spoil the day completely? It may not be a perfect day to EAT outside, but, it may be a perfect day to PLAY ou [...]

    6. Love this book! Read it today to 20 of my preschoolers and they enjoyed it soooo much! This group can hardly sit through one story, but connected with the characters and as I finished the first story, we're thrilled to hear the other two!

    7. This was an ARC. I think beginning readers will love this book. The stories are cute and the illustrations are fun.

    8. Every since I discovered the Elephant & Piggie books by Mo Willems, I've been keeping my eyes open for books with similar qualities. Qualities such as delightful, expressive illustrations, short, funny stories, and great characters. I'm delighted to say that I have found such a series in this new series by Salina Yoon. I love the bright, colorful illustrations, they are very eye-catching and appealing. The characters make me smile and even laugh. And I have no doubt that young listeners/read [...]

    9. Duck, Duck, Porcupine are friends who do lots of fun things together. They plan a picnic but the rain turns their picnic into a puddle splashing event. When Porcupine’s birthday finally arrived, Big Duck had trouble remembering. The three planned a camping trip and Big Duck brought everything including the kitchen sink. Little Duck knew that a camp fire and marshmallows were all they needed.Young readers will easily recognize the easy words in all three stories. Parents and teachers can have s [...]

    10. Good choice for a beginning reader for kids who are ready for their first "chapter books." The brightly colored illustrations and thick, dark lineart are eye-catching and an instant draw. Comparisons to Elephant & Piggie are inevitable because they're both about friends with differing personalities. Ultimately I think Elephant & Piggie's humor is a little more successful (although Porcupine's "kitchen sink" comment still earned a chuckle from me), but this would still be a good pick for [...]

    11. Cute story. The 3 friends are Big Duck (white duck), Little Duck (yellow duck), and porcupine.Little Duck doesn't speak, but plays an important role. I think it validates the knowledge and awareness of little ones. Little Duck is more than ready to play in the rain (instead of letting rain ruin a picnic), remember a friend's birthday, and just begin camping (without perfect preparation).Would be interesting to read one for "Whoever does not enter the Kingdom of God as a little child."

    12. This was a fun set of three stories about three friends. The strength of their friendship and their distinct personalities come through well without being directly addressed.The characters are very expressive, even Little Duck (who doesn't speak), and with what seems like minimal change in illustrations. It's really well done.

    13. With brightly colored illustrations and easy to read dialogue, this is part comic book, part chapter book, and part picture book about three engaging characters: Big Duck, Little Duck and Porcupine. Although Little Duck doesn't speak, his body language communicates a great deal. Three chapters of pure fun that will have readers wanting more.

    14. I just love Salina Yoon's illustrations! This is a great beginning chapter book for lower level students and I loved the humor in it too.

    15. Easy book to introduce GN to young readers. 3 stories in one book. Loved the camping one! Students could write their own list to get ready for an event!

    16. Three short chapters: Three sly little stories: Three friends: You can tell the smart one because on the cover he is looking at you!First Line: "This is a perfect day for a picnic, Porcupine."

    17. It was a good book. I like that it can be used to teach concepts like simple sentences, exclamations, prosody, and predictions. It is also great for introducing chapter books to young readers.

    18. 3 1/2 stars.3 Stories in one book. About finding the good in any situation, listening to others, and remembering to have fun.
