   Beautiful Story
A delightful introduction to duck behavior. The 1940s vision of ducks living between the Charles River and the Boston Public Gardens is something that anyone who wants to visit Boston will appreciate. The gentleness and humor of McCloskey's work was special for children. A Time of Wonder, One Morning in Maine and Make Way For Ducklings are books that build appreciation for nature and human relationships. One summer day in northeastern Massachusetts, I had to stop on a road near a lake to let a family of ducks cross the road. I thought about Make Way for Ducklings. It's not unusual for ducks to spend their summers. NPR sadly announced the death of Robert McCloskey. That was one amazing coincidence and I am not superstitious.
I am glad I bought this book for my nephew. Everyone should have an appreciation for ducks. The illustrations and story line are beautiful. The artwork is stunning and inspiring to anyone who can appreciate it, even if the illustrations are less exciting to some children who prefer colors. My nephew and niece love reading.
   Great Boston classic read
A child came to Boston for a short time and this book was given to them. The book is a great way to share the fun of Boston with visitors.
   Make way for ducklings
This story brings back happy memories for my great grandfather who was patient and kind. The story is enjoyable and my grandson will love it. All books should be in my opinion, so I purchased the hard back. Can't wait.
   Bought used to and not in condition advertised.
The condition of the book wouldn't have called it good. There was a torn cover. There are very worn pages. Had I known it was so poor, I wouldn't have paid 10 bucks.
   Make Way for Ducklings
My niece is a reluctant reader. She received a book each month from Aunt Donna. I picked the Caldecott medal winners. She really liked every book I sent her. She wants me to send more. The reluctant reader is learning to enjoy reading.
   This book bridged the gap between the USA and Soviet Union in 1991
There is a lake in Moscow. He was inspired to write the ballet. President George H.W. was on it's shores in 1991. Barbara Bush gave the bronze figures from Make Way For Ducklings to President Gorbachev. It was given to the children of The Soviet Union from the children of the United States of America, according to the inscription. The ice was broken when Mrs. Bush and Raisa Gorbachev met. The Strategic Arms Reduction Treaties limited the long range nuclear weapons between the two countries and were negotiated by President Bush.
