The Lovereading4Kids comment
April 2017 Book of the Month Great fun to read out loud this funny story deftly celebrates inclusivity and the importance of openness and friendship. Duck wants to make new friends so he decides to join a club, but he faces multiple rejections: Elephant will only let those who can trumpet like he can into his club; Snake is suspicious of those with legs and wings and also demands that members hiss to his high standard; Lion will only accept those who can roar. In the end Duck decides he’ll set up his own club and let in anyone who wants to join – he ends up with lots of friends as a result. Children will understand just how Duck feels and they will totally get the book’s message. Great fun, and this offers lots of opportunities for conversation too. ~ Andrea Reece

Can I Join Your Club? by John Kelly
Duck wants to join a club. But he needs to be able to ROAR to join Lion Club, or TRUMPET to join Elephant Club. And all he can do is QUACK! What's a Duck to do? Why, set up his own club of course...where everyone is welcome to join!
With recent international events and the current social and political climate, Can I Join Your Club? is a
humorous and fun way to encourage conversations about tolerance, acceptance and unity. Whether on a global scale, or making new friends at school or nursery, it is more important than ever to teach children that we can all be members of the same club.
“Laugh-out-loud story that's perfect for children who are making new friends at school or nursery, with some
magnificently noisy animals to join in with.” - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
