Présentation de l'éditeur

A young boy weighs the pros and cons of possessing various animal appendages—such as a duck's feet, a deer's antlers, a whale's spout, an elephant's trunk, and a long, long tail—only to decide that he's better off just being himself. A zany, insightful story that beginning readers will wish to hear again and again!

What If? 12 février 2001
Par Donald Mitchell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book clearly deserves more than five stars for being one of the most helpful and interesting children's books of all time!
Children have powerful imaginations, and this book provides an outstanding model for helping them to learn how to use their imaginations in more useful ways. In addition, the story is so interesting and compelling that they will be drawn into wanting to reread it often. As a result, they will begin to memorize the sentences . . . and thus have the foundation for identifying the words that go along with their recollections.
Unlike many children's books, this one would also be appealing to adult literacy students.
The illustrations are particularly good for making the boy's (and your child's) imagination come to life.
The book begins with the boy waddling around on duck feet.
"You can splash around in duck feet.
You don't have to keep them dry.
No more shoes!"
". . . very good to have them when I play." This is illustrated with the boy getting thules in a pond while ducks swim by.
"BUT . . . My mother would not like them." She would not like the wet mess in her clean house.
From this sequence, you can see how the book is structured. The child imagines some new feature attached to his body. He then thinks about the advantages of that new feature. Next, he considers the drawbacks. Having looked at both, he goes on to decide whether to keep the feature or not. This is a method that many geniuses have used throughout history to make their great breakthroughs. Sharing this method is a wonderful gift to give your child!
Then, the boy goes on to repeat the process.
"SO . . . If I can't have duck feet,
I'll have something else instead . . .
. . . two horns up on my head."
He tries on "a long, long tail," "a nose just like an elephant's," and "ALL THOSE THINGS!" The last he calls a "Which-What-Who."
Then the story teaches its final lesson:
"AND SO . . . I think there are some things I do not wish to be."
"And that is why
I think that I
just wish to be like ME."
The final illustration shows all of the appendages discussed in the book in a garbage can.
An obvious application of the book is to encourage your child to come up with her or his own ideas for changing the body, discussing benefits and drawbacks, and deciding whether the change would be a beneficial one over all. You can have tremendous fun with that one, while teaching Benjamin Franklin's favorite method for making decisions. He would list all of the pros and cons of something on a piece of paper, and then decide what do do. Millions still use this process.
I especially like the way the book helps the child come to appreciate what he or she already has. Few books of imagination leave a child feeling more satisfied with herself or himself. That's a very nice touch.
If you find that your child is sensitive about some feature (glasses, being diminutive, a large nose, or whatever), you can use this book's structure in a different way. You can encourage your child to find as many advantages as possible to overbalance the disadvantages that have already been noticed, and to be glad about that feature. That perspective would be a great gift to your child!
See potential all around you . . . then seize the opportunities that truly make sense!

A lesson in on-balance assessment from Theo. LeSieg 26 mars 2004
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
If you go by the last line of "I Wish That I Had Duck Feet" then you would be inclined to think that this "I Can Read It All By Myself: Beginner Book" is about building self esteem in small children. But this book, written by Theo. LeSieg (do the last name backwards) and illustrated by B. Tobey, does two other important things as well. As is the case with any and all books from Dr. Seuss, there is an emphasis on the imagination. The young boy who wishes he had duck feet also wishes that he could have deer horns, a long tail, and several other physical features that would make him unique and special.
But the most important thing that "I Wish That I Had Duck Feet" teaches beginning readers is the value of looking at both sides of an issue. While the young boy is able to come up with lots of reasons why having duck feet would be a good thing, his mother has at least one very good reason why he would not want them. From that point on in the story the young boy comes up with both the pros and cons for each of the things for which he wishes. Not only does this make the point that kids should think things through first, but it also serves as a reminder that not everything kids wish for is worth having.
Still, the ability to see both sides of an issue is an important skill for young kids to acquire (older ones too, for that matter). Besides, parents can use the lesson from this book to good advantage. The next time your kid wishes they could have something and they tell you all the reasons why it would be a good thing to have, you can ask that they come up with reasons for the down side. If they claim they cannot come up with any you can certainly find one and tell them that since they could not come up with the pros and cons the answer is "No." However, as much fun as this can be keep in mind that if they come up with points for both sides and make the case for the pros outweighing the cons, you are pretty much obligated to grant their wish.

I Wish That I Had Duck Feet 27 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
One of my children's all-time favorites. I first read it to my daughter when she was 2 and she insisted I read it to her several times a day. This went on for months. I then began leaving off the last word of every other sentence and as I pointed to it, she "read" it from memory. I credit this book with helping to give her a love for reading. By the time she was 4 she could read it on her own (not just memorized). I recently asked my 10-year-old son to list his favorite books from his early childhood and this one was at the top of the list. I think the zaniness of imagining having duck feet or antlers really appeals to a child. As a teacher, I also use this book with older children who are having trouble with reading.

A harrowing tale of a boy trying to find himself. 17 juin 2014
Par Nick Place - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
'I wish that I had duck feet' is one of LeSieg's darker, more complex works.

On the surface, a light-hearted musing on how a young boy's life could be more fun if he had various animal parts instead of human limbs, nose etc, at its heart this is a deeply emotional journey.

The boy in question is wrestling major life issues, from a potentially Oedipal relationship with his favourite school teacher, whose affection and respect he desperately craves, to an even more confused and troublesome relationship with a larger, more Alpha male called 'Big Bill Brown'.

A telling moment in LeSieg's fable is the final scene where Big Bill Brown is among the well-wishers, as the boy tries to come to terms with his reality, with the existence that he must live, unable to lean on such carnival tricks as a long tail or an elephant trunk.

At the end of this book, as in life, the boy realises that we are all stripped back to the sum of the parts that we actually are and we must learn to love ourselves. I'll admit it. I cried.

Dr Seuss at his best 5 septembre 2012
Par C. Lichtman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I must admit that I had not heard of this book until my 3 year old son came home from day-care quoting it. That being said, it is a fun read. It is a little longer than the usual Seuss books, but with the Seussian rhymes you don't even notice. I also love the final sentiment that you should be happy with who you are.
