      Even though it has an overly long story and okay drawings, I still like this book a lot Young Johnny heads off for a hike with his new knapsack, passes a few of his neighbors including his favorite, the Professor, before heading into the woods, discovering an injured duck that he brings home This one will probably appeal to young boys, who will enjoy it if they can keep up with the abundance of text 3.6 stars.

      1950 Caldecott Honor Book I wish the story was as lively as the book title The story is ok, but really long and drawn out Johnny goes for a hike and meets his neighbor, the Professor, who invites him over later for cake since it s the Professor s birthday Johnny feels bad he doesn t have a present, and no money for one either On his hike, he sees a duck who has an injured wing and Johnny takes the duck home and gives it to the Professor, who just happened to get 3 baby ducks from another friend [...]

      I had been putting off this one for awhile due to its length a bit too long to read to my son I really enjoyed the last book, Roger and the Fox, that I read by this author and illustrator team This book won a 1950 Caldecott Honor, and it s the best one I ve read so far from that year Johnny is a young boy who has bought a backpack for himself, filled it with a lunch, and intends on going hiking in the woods On the way there, he sees some of the people he regularly helps out with chores, but is t [...]

      Not as interesting as it sounds.Long Very Wordy I almost didn t read it but the title intrigued me.There s a little boy He wants to go on an adventure He has a friend who is a professor Well, he s at least called The Professor It s not clear whether he really is a professor or not He s got a lot of pet animals He s got a tame squirrel and a crow and bugs and stuff.The boy forgot that it s the Professor s birthday, though So he goes hiking looking for a present He finds some ducks, one of whom is [...]

      I usually try not to judge a book from the 1940 s by today s standards, but it is difficult with this book It is a very nice story, about a boy who need s a birthday gift for his neighbor who is turning 75 The illustrations, for which this book received a Caldecott Honor, are nothing spectacular I think there are some books that received the Honor for the story than the illustrations, and I believe that is the case with this book I enjoyed reading the book, so overall I would give it three star [...]

      1950 Caldecott HonorFavorite illustration When Johnny falls into the pond while trying to catch the duck.Favorite line It was a wonderful Fourth of July sort of idea that exploded like a rocket right inside Johnny s head Kid appeal today While I like the premise of this boy trying find a creative birthday gift in the woods around his home, it was just way too long The pictures, while nicely executed, are muted in there tone, so I don t think will hold enough appeal for kids when combined with th [...]

      This story resonated with me because it sticks close to home and finds fun in the everyday This is a long story, but it s great for kids who are interested in nature and caring for animals I also liked Johnny s relationships with his older neighbors The illustrations in this one are not my favorite, since they re so old fashioned, but the writing is much descriptive than most contemporary picture books.

    8. Molly on said:

      This is the story of a boy who finds an unconventional gift for a friend of his The story is far too long and boring, but the pictures are nice.

    9. Mary on said:

      Far too long The illustrations are in grey, brown, green, and yellow, primarily, and definitely evoke the era in which they were created.

    10. Katie on said:

      This was a great story, however I thought it was quite long for a picture book The book is filled with positive and colorful natural references, which is nice.
