Make Way for Ducklings

By Robert McCloskey

Added May 6, 2009

It's not easy for duck parents to find a safe place to raise their ducklings, but during a rest stop in Boston's Public Garden, Mr. and Mrs. Mallard think they just might have found the perfect spot. When Mrs. Mallard and her eight ducklings are stuck at a busy street in downtown Boston, their policeman friend Michael rushes in to stop traffic and make way for them. With its bird’s-eye-view tour of Boston, this classic won the 1942 Caldecott Medal, which is awarded annually to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children published that year.
