My older child (age 5) finally has an interest in some of my favorite picture books, ones that I’ve been hoping he’d like for years. One is Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey (1941). He finally appreciates it!
I think the story of Make Way for Ducklings is fantastic. The personalities assigned to the ducklings is adorable. It is so much fun to read aloud. The illustrations are full of power, even without any color. It’s a book that is meant to be savored for generations. It won the Caldecott Medal in 1942.
