Caldecott Medal in 1941

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic tale of the famous Mallard ducks of Boston. Awarded the Caldecott Medal in 1941, Make Way for Ducklings has been described as "one of the merriest picture books ever" (The New York Times). Ideal for reading aloud, this book deserves a place of honor on every child's bookshelf.

Synopsis:

A pair of ducks proudly return to their home in the Boston Public Garden withtheir eight offspring.

I am really excited to have this beautiful book to share with other mothers and children, now in Spanish. My mother first gave me "Make Way for Ducklings" (in English) years ago. When she said her fourth-grade students loved it, I thought it was probably way too old for my two-year-old, but no! Every day he insisted that this was the book he wanted to hear (and look at) over and over again. My next child was the same, and a few years later we acquired a mama mallard with six ducklings and exactly the same fiercely maternal attitude as the mother duck in the story: "Make way: my kids are coming through!" All the Muscovy ducks and even the biggest, toughest roosters in our poultry yard waited in line for her babies to be finished at the water trough, so I know this book is based on true mallard traits (and believe it is, as claimed, a true story).

The book is very well written, and the soft pencil drawings, realistic and detailed, are really lovely. I don't recall whether the medal on the front cover represents the Newberry or the Caldecott Award (one is for best story, the other for best illustrations), but in my judgment, the book deserves both. I certainly recommend it for children of a broad range of ages.

!Que gusto tan grande de poder compartir este libro lindo con mis amigos de habla espanol! Mi mama me lo regalo hace anos (en ingles). Cuando me dijo que sus estudiantes del cuarto grado adoraban el libro, yo crei que mi nino de dos anos fuera demasiado joven, pero !no! Cada dia, este fue el cuento que queria oir, otra vez y otra vez, y mi proximo nino tambien. Fue un de sus libros favoritos. Dos anos mas tarde, compramos una pata "mallard" con seis patitos; y ella tambien demostro la misma actitud fieramente maternal como la pata en el cuento, de modo que aun nuestros gallos mas grandes y machos abrieron paso a sus patitos de ella.

Es muy bien escrito este libro, y los dibujos suaves en lapiz, muy realistas y detallados, son de veras lindos. No me acuerdo si la medalla en el libro representa el Premio Newberry or Caldecott (el uno es para el mejor cuento, el otro para las mejores ilustraciones), pero creo bien que "Abran Paso a Los Patitos" vale ambos.
