BLOG TOUR: Daredevil Duck by Charlie Alder


Meet Daredevil Duck
He is afraid of everything. But that doesn't stop him from DREAMING of being brave.
Then one day he is given the biggest challenge of all . . .
Can Daredevil Duck prove that he is the bravest duck in the whole wide world?


I was a little bit startled when I discovered that this book has a few foldout pages, but after reading the book decided that it really works for this book.  Daredevil Duck is an adorable character who doesn't really live up to his nickname leading other ducks to make fun of him. After a disaster occurs and Daredevil Duck panics, he is shocked to discover that Mole wants his help retrieving his balloon from a tree.  Can Daredevil Duck overcome his numerous fears to help a new friend?  I loved the theme here of overcoming one's fears, I liked the idea of doing in behalf of someone else even better.  Sometimes that is exactly what we need to overcome our fears, a strong motivation.  But like most people, Daredevil Duck has only just started down the path to conquering his fears, he still has a long way to go.  This book would be perfect for sharing one on one and with some juggling with a group (foldouts can be a bit awkward with a group, although they enjoy seeing them).
