Make Way for Ducklings
Mr. and Mrs. Mallard are looking for the perfect place to raise a family. They select a quiet spot on an island in a river in Boston. Although it is a little bit of a walk, it is still close enough for them to go to the Public Garden Park and see their favorite policeman, Michael, who feeds them peanuts. Soon Mrs. Mallard lays eight eggs, which hatch into eight adorable ducklings. One day Mr. Mallard decides to venture down the river, and he tells Mrs. Mallard to meet him at the park in exactly one week. Mrs. Mallard teaches the little ducklings how to swim, dive, stay away from danger, and walk in a straight line, and then they are off to the park to meet their father. Mrs. Mallard leads them to the riverbank and off they march to the park. Will they get through the busy town safely?
