Make Way for Ducklings

jen darling by j.k.h. nelsonSometimes you see something really simple that just makes you smile. As a semi-Bostonian ( I was born in bean town), ducks and birds in general are an easy way to add a smile to my face. I ate, breathed, and dreamed Make Way for Ducklings as a child. It was only natural that my sorority family’s sigil is the duck. Yup, I just said that.

These simple wedding photos may show black swans (another stunning creature), and it makes me wish we had com up with the idea. Maybe I can photoshop Adam and myself into these photos… just kidding. Either way, the duckling in me is super jealous of these gorgeous photos.

I used to love going to visit the ducklings at Boston Public Garden, and I can’t wait to take my children there (someday far in the future). What was your favorite book as a child? How would you bring it into your grown-up life?

    My sister and I also loved Make Way for Ducklings as children. A favorite Peabody story is recounting the trouble that my sister had saying “Mr and Mrs Mallard”. She’s figured it out now and reads the story to her son Joseph.

      That’s fantastic! I think you definitely have to have family from New England to know about it, it seems like a very regional children’s story.
