Make Way for Ducklings, by Robert McCloskey is one of my all time favorite books for many reasons. The illustrations are nostalgic and sweet and they show Boston landmarks like the Public Garden and the Charles River the way they looked almost 75 years ago!
As a child I loved going to visit the Public Garden and seeing the bronze statues dedicated to the book - they made the story feel so alive. To make the story come alive at home, try making these duckling magnets. Can you imagine making a cool drawing of the Boston Public Garden and taping it to your fridge so that your magnet ducks can have their own adventures?
