Make Way for Ducklings (paperback)
This classic tale of the famous Mallard ducks of Boston who look for a home for their hatchlings was awarded the Caldecott Medal in 1941. It has been described as "one of the merriest picture books ever" by The New York Times. Ideal for reading aloud, the book deserves a place of honor on every child's bookshelf. Told in very few words with a gravity that underscores the delightful comedy of the pictures--fine large pictures, strongly drawn, with a wealth of detail, Robert McCloskey's story and unusual and stunning pictures are a delight. For ages 3-7.
