I've actually sat on the bronze ducks in the gardens that honor this book when I was a kid! I'd probably break them now that I'm 28 , ha ha!
Great story. Despite not having colour illustrations it was still engaging and our 3 year old still questioned things in the pictures. I like it when it's not all about colour stimulation.
Mr and Mrs Mallard search for a place to lay eggs and raise their ducklings. A mix of nature and city issues. The police stopping the traffic and helping them cross the road is a great part I thought.
Our son asked for it over and over and over again.
I even learnt things about ducks I didn't know! They don't like turtles and they eat peanuts, and their feathers malt so they can't fly for nesting season! Both husband and I even made comments about those facts and our son loved that it was something we didn't know I think, and I loved that I could show him I don't know everything and reading books can help us learn interesting facts.
Highly recommend this, it is a classic case of don't judge the cover.
Lovely story children will want to hear again and again!
Classic tale,, the children enjoyed the story
A solid classic. I was lucky to get a chance to visit the Public Garden in Boston, where this story is immortalized with bronze sculptures of the ducklings and their mama. I know I read this as a child, but it was nice to revisit it again.
Love this book, the illustrations and text blend together.
