Two Caldecott Award Winning Books

Robert McCloskey wrote and illustrated Blueberries for Sal and Make Way for Ducklings.  Both stories won awards for their creative illustrations.  Blueberries for Sal  is set in Maine.  Two different mothers are on opposite sides of the same hill with their young child….and so the adventure of blueberry picking begins.  McCloskey utilizes the literary skill of Onomatopoeia to help the reader better participate in the berry picking experience.  Make Way for Ducklings is about a Mallard duck family making a home in the Public Garden of Boston, Massachusetts.  Mrs. Mallard decides to take her eight ducklings (all with rhyming names) for a walk.  Now, things begin to get exciting, but all ends well.  Both books are enjoyable to read and may be combined with activities like visiting a park with ducks or going berry picking at a local farm.
