More Books!

I'm linking up with Deanna Jump again to talk more about books.  There are SO many that I love!  It was hard to narrow it down, but this time I picked one of my childhood favorites:

Make Way For Ducklings by Robert McCloskey

I love this book for many different reasons:
  • The pictures - They are so simple and so well done.  They add so much to the story and I have always loved looking at all of the pictures throughout the book.
  • The story - I have always enjoyed reading this story (:
  • The statue.  Yep - there is a statue!  My husband and I went to Boston last year and when we were walking through the park I about fell over when I saw the little ducks from this story right there, in statue form!  And what made it even more precious was that it was during the hockey playoffs (Go Chicago Blackhawks!) and each little duckling was wearing a Bruins jersey.  So, of course I had to have my picture taken with them!!!

I had this picture framed and I keep it in my classroom library - right next to the book.  How fun!
