Daphne & Gerhard by Abby Stuart

I really enjoyed the story of the characters Dominic and Ava who adopt a pair of ducks and learn about seasonal migration from their grandmother. I don’t usually enjoy rhyming stories, but Ms. Stuart executes the form well. 

My biggest complaint with this book is the seemingly computer generated illustrations. The quality of the illustrations is inconsistent and seems copy-and-pasted. 

Because of the poor illustration quality, I give this book three stars. I personally wouldn’t purchase this book for my son’s library, but would look for a children’s book about migration with higher quality illustrations. 

I received an advance copy of this review for free, and I’m leaving this review voluntarily.
