review 1: I absolutely loved this adorable picture book because the little girl, Emily, reminded me of myself. She was extremely serious about everything in life until she came upon a silly little duck wearing socks. Each day she saw the duck he was wearing a different silly accessory, even sporting underwear one sunny afternoon on his boat! Through their meetings, Emily realizes that there is more to life than just being serious, and that it is okay to let loose and just be silly at times! This is actually a lesson that I need to take to heart because life is too short to miss all the fun!
review 2: "Emily was a serious girl." Though this is the only written description, we learn much about Emily through the illustrations: she takes cello lessons, her mom takes her
... moreto fancy cafés and she enjoys bird watching. And that's where her seriousness gets tried: one day she sees a duck wearing socks. Then he's wearing a tie. The last thing she sees him wearing is, of course, underwear, which makes her giggle. This fun story will make you laugh, and the pictures amplify the text beautifully: soft, clean and colorful, duck is wacky and Emily is cute. Pair this with a Pigeon book (Mo Willems) for a fun bird storytime. less

Fun little story about a very serious girl who learns to have a little fun ;)
Really dig the illustrations. Story is a bit lacking.
Fun in a short but sweet way. Great illustrations.
great art! Loved the "very serious" girl.
This is a very cute book for children.
