Reviews for Peach The Duck

Review: “Peach-The-Duck,” is the delightful series by Caribbean-native Kamla Millwood.  Millwood emulates the long tradition of narratives constructed for children.  Young readers are urged to not only dream, but to feel safe in their scrutiny of the world.  Moreover, Peach The Duck exhorts young readers to live in harmony within themselves in life’s early stages. 


In the first book, “Peach The Duck,” we are introduced to the cuddly, anthropomorphic duck, Peach.  She is a young girl whose behavior personifies every child embarking upon their first discoveries of their world and their place in it.   Peach forms a sacred attachment to an object, a pair of socks; in the second book, “A Peach on The Beach,” she tests the boundaries of personal autonomy during a play-day at the beach; in the third book, “Peach Plays Pretend,” our intrepid girl-duck is encouraged to dream and travel; in this fourth book, “Peach’s Pet Pug Paulo,” she is introduced to the un-conditional loving found in friendship.  Peach’s Pet Pug Paulo becomes a convivial mirror for Peach to explore her world.

As a traveler to 33-countries, I am aware people organize their lives according to how safe they feel, or not.  In this age of global anxiety, Peach is joyfully fearless; she is, one of the recurrent heroes traveling through mythology. One can’t help but wonder whether Peach’s universe has been inspired by the author’s childhood idyll: St. Vincent and The Grenadines.

Review: Peach On The Beach is a great book that introduces rhyming to small children.  Peach the duck is just as fun as can be and the children love to hear of her adventures. We love the entire series and can't wait to go on more adventures with Peach.

Review: A Peach On The Beach depicts your fun day in the sun that is going so well and suddenly, either sand blows in your face, your feet get burned by the sand, or your umbrella blows over on you.  It stalls your fun for a brief but scary moment and then the fun begins again.  After a while, you forget it ever happened.

Review: Peach The Duck explores the fun and scary world of our little ones; sometimes their imaginations make things scarier than we think.  But they also have their comfort items that enable them to adjust when we are not in their presence and once those things are disturbed, it is very hard for them.  But we always come and save the day like the super-parents we are.
