Make Way for Ducklings


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

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.

More than twenty years after I first discovered it on a library shelf, McCloskey’s delightful picture book about a pair of ducks who raise a family in a city park still ranks high on my list of favourite books; in fact, I now read it to my own children. The story speaks to their imagination as it did to mine when I was six. The detailed, expressive drawings combine with eloquent language to make this book memorable from generation to generation of children.
