Make Way for Ducklings

Make Way for Ducklings Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mrs. Mallard was sure that the pond in the Boston Public Gardens would be a perfect place for her and her eight ducklings to live.  The problem was how to get them there through the busy streets of Boston.  But with a little help from the Boston police, Mrs. Mallard and Jack, Kack, Lack, Nack, Ouack, Pack, and Quack arive safely at their new home.

   This brilliantly illustrated, amusingly observed tale of Mallards on the move has won the hearts of generations of readers.  Awarded the

Caldecott Medal for the most distinguished American picture book for children in 1941, it has since become a favorite of millions.

Synopsis:

Welcome to Centerburg!  Where you can win a hundred dollars by eating all the doughnuts you want;  where houses are built in a day; and where a boy named Homer Price can foil four slick bandits using nothing but his wits and pet skunk.

The comic genius of Robert McCloskey and his wry look at small-town America has kept readers in stitches for generations!

Synopsis:

A Caldecott Honor Book!

Today is a specidal day for Sal because she gets to go to Buck's Harbour with her dad. But when she wakes up to brush her teeth with her baby sister, she discovers something shocking.... Her tooth is loose!

And that's just the start of a huge day!

About the Author

Robert McCloskey (1912-2003) created some of the most honored and enduring children's books ever published. He was born in Hamilton, Ohio, the town that served as the model for Lentil, the first of many books that he wrote and/or illustrated for children. His second book, Make Way for Ducklings, received the Caldecott Award, as did his book Time of Wonder, making him the first person to be so honored twice.
