While the text is simplistic, the illustrations and flow convey a lovely story. A story with an important message about personal growth, inspiring the reader to learn to live life without their personal crutches. We could all use a friend who challenges us like Ducky, instead of an enabler.

Pacifier loving Piggy and Ducky decide to play a game of peek-a-boo, but Piggy's pacifier gets in the way of him speaking, laughing and having fun. While playing together, Piggy realizes that he doesn't need his pacifier.

The illustrations are fun, with Ducky and Piggy having the proportions of toddlers. (They even drink from piggy and ducky cops).

Bernette Ford, No More Pacifier for Piggy! (Boxer Books, 2012)

We got this and another book in the series (No More Biting for Billy Goat!) out of the library and put them into rotation at story time. I wasn't convinced at first they were going to last the entire tenure (our library allows three-week book checkouts), but we're into week three and both the bean and I have warmed to the characters somewhat, though the writing still feels a little more expository than it feels like it should be (“Pig
Illustrations are adorable; I like Piggy and Ducky! I thought the story was cute, too--and I'm pretty sure we'll be reading this again when my kids get old enough that they need to ditch the pacifiers.
Piggy and his friend Ducky spend the day playing, but for the first part of the day Piggy's pacifier seems to get in the way. When he drops it on the ground and finds he doesn't have anymore backups, Piggy becomes upset. Ducky to the rescue! The friends play all day and have so much fun that Piggy forgets all about his pacifier.

The story was just eh for me because I didn't buy that Piggy (or a child) would just forget about their beloved pacifier with a day of distracted play.

The watercolor art
This is a cute little board book which tries to help kids get over the need for a pacifier. My daughter never took to a pacifier so we just read the book because it was new and on hand.

The drawings are very vivid and colourful, the words are usefully repetitive and what kid doesn't love peek-a-boo? My daughter stayed interested all the way through, which is a feat for this 9 month old!

Recommends it for: Moms of overgrown binky users
An adorable little Piggy can't seem to give up his "binky" and it's starting to interfere with his play time with his friends. He soon discovers that it's okay to leave the binky behind. A good lesson for all! lol.
A cute story with cute illustrations. Perfect for Moms who can't seem to get their toddler to give up the pacifier. Of course the book alone won't help but it might be a start.
This is a great book dealing with the ever difficult "letting go" of the beloved pacifier. This is an age-appropriate book with a great lesson in which Piggy has to choose between playing new games with a friend, or his pacifier. Also in this series, No More Diapers for Ducky.

Great big illustrations make this a cute book for kids. Not sure about the getting rid of a pacifier that big of a deal? Hmm. But the pictures are awesome and I want to cuddle the ducky.
This is a good book to explain some good reasons to stop sucking on a pacifier. My son enjoyed it. I thought it was okay. The illustrations were cute.
