    The Big Chill Except With The Ducklings From Make Way For Ducklings, Now All Grown Up is what I originally was going to post for this review but then I was like you know who likes ridiculous things with extremely long titles is McSweeney s, I should see if they want this, and they did Here are the Duckling things I didn t cover a my kid thinks all cops are named Michael nowb here is a funny tweet c this book is very famous amongst Bostonians and all babies born in Boston automatically get like five copies of it from various cousins This is for good reasons c.1 there are not many famous things from Boston, it s pretty much this and Aerosmith, western Mass tries to take credit for the Pixies too but it doesn t always workc.2 Make Way For Ducklings is oddly specific in its Boston geography It s practically a tour guide.Anyway the result is that there s a statue of the ducklings on Boston Common and here s my kid with them, following my general rule of Always Post A Pic...

    A beautifully illustrated story about two mallards who are searching for the perfect place to raise a family Although they don t pick an ideal place everyone does their best to help the ducks when the ducklings arrive A happy story about ducks raising a family and living in a built up area.Borrowed from openlibrary.

    5 and a Mr and Mrs Mallard search for a good home in which to raise their brood It must be safe from foxes and turtles, have water to swim in, and a good source of food They find the perfect place just in time This is a perennial favorite for children and their parents I have many fond memories of sitting before the television, watching in rapt attention as Captain Kangaroo read this book to us Oh, how I loved the story of how Policeman Michael and the other people ensured the safety of Mrs Mallard and her brood Jack, Kack, Lack, Mack, Nack, Ouack, Pack and Quack, as they crossed busy streets, waddled past coffee shops and book stores, and finally made their way to the Public Gardens, for a reunion with Mr Mallard who waited patiently on the little island in the pond It s an absolute delight to revisit this story and my adult self is much able to appreciate the wonderfully detailed illustrations.

    3.5 Stars I adore the art in this book and it s just so stinking cute Small fry loved counting the ducklings and reading off their names But the ending also feels really abrupt after soooo much build up

    This is probably one of my all time favorites I live near Boston and am very familiar with the Public Garden They have installed Make Way for Duckling sculptures there which any visitor to Boston might enjoy seeing.

    Warning CONTAINS SPOILERS My reading of Make Way for Ducklings is not seeped in nostalgia like some readers experiences might be at a later age Because of this, I might have the advantage or disadvantage of recognizing some questionable plot holes that the sentimental reader might overlook Mr and Mrs Mallard open our story by flying over beautiful New England scenery with plenty of lakes, woods, and fields looking for a place to raise their family Because there might be natural predators in, well, nature, they press onward toward the naturally safer choice to raise babies in the heart of an east cost Metropolis Landing on an island in a lake in the middle of a city park, The Mallards delight in the free peanuts city slickers toss at them and exclaim that this right here is the good life note ducks should not eat peanuts That is, until they almost get run over by a bicycle No good We can t have our babies squished Let s press on, they agree Spotting another island this time in th...

    I m a big fan of McCloskey ever since I read the Homer books when I was a kid So I was pleasantly surprised to find this book in our school supplies for our charter school this year Nice to see some diversity in the language arts lesson plans Unfortunately, or rather fortunately , my 5 yr old tested out of Kindergarten and into first grade, so we ll be sending the materials back and waiting for our first grade materials In the meantime, I m going through and reading all the books to the kids from the Reading lesson plans, many of which seem to have Caldecott awards This one had an award too, and it was easy to see why from the old fashioned pictures that had so much detail My son and I loved reading this one together over breakfast Probably could be considered a level 2 reading book, and so my son could have read it on his own, however, sometimes reading together is just so much fun, and this author has always been a favorite of mine.
