Caleb's review Mar 12, 2010
This is a review of Daniel's Duck, written by Clyde Robert Bulla. It was published by Harper Collins publishers in 1979. It's a story about a little boy who lives in Tennessee. He wants to carve something so that he can bring it to the fair. As cold winter days go by, Daniel sits by the water to think what am I going to carve? He finally figures out that he wants to carve a duck. It was time to go to the spring fair. I think you should buy this book because it is really cool. My favorite part was when Daniel almost threw his duck into the water. This book made me feel happy. Caleb Davis, 7 years old.
Gifted and Talented Book Jan 27, 2010
This is a good book for gifted and talented kids. It make connections to a character that trys a new skill and the feeling he has of self-judgement and the opinions of others.
A+++ for Daniel's Duck Apr 13, 2006
This book has a lot going for it - not only is it written by Clyde Robert Bulla, a prolific and talented writer whose books are slowly (and sadly) going out of print, it is also "An I Can Read Book", which is my favorite series of readers for young children.
While the setting of this book is well over 110 years ago, the emotions portrayed in this book will be accessible to every child. Daniel is the youngest child in his family, and wants to make something for the spring fair. Despite some well-intentioned "wait until you're older" discouragement from his family, he carves a duck and is quite proud of it. He brings it to the fair, and then sees people laughing at it. Embarrassed and angry, he grabs his duck and runs to the river to throw it in, but is stopped by the best wood-carver in Tennessee. Their conversation is simple and effective, without being sacharine or artificial.
My kids have picked up this book more than once to read on their own.

Prediction Skills May 4, 2000
This is a great book to use when you help enhance your students' prediction skills. You could have the students guess what they think will happen next as you orally read the story. You could also have the students write their own ending and then read the book's ending to see if they guessed right or if they like their own ending better! I would use this in grades 1-3.
