Item Summary

No. of item(s):
Total amount:

Many children may develop a special interest that others can find peculiar. This can be isolating for these children. Dabby is a remarkable duck who loves spending time upside down in the water. She is rejected by the other ducks in her pond because her unique interest makes her different. But when Dabby makes an amazing discovery while upside down, her peers learn to celebrate her for her difference. This story is meant to reaffirm children’s special interests, and help them to view theirs as a strength, rather than a deficit.
