Make Way For Ducklings..and more delightful duck stories
( Scholastic $12.95 Score: )

There is one live action story in this collection, Angus and the Ducks, based on Marjorie Flck’s classic Scottie dog, Angus. All the other well known and award winning storybooks here are done with music and moving camera to enliven the still images. So, for a generation of kids who have grown up on animation, this may look odd. That said, this disk has several storybooks that every child should know. Robert McCLoskey’s Make Way for Ducklings was the winner of the Caldecott award in 1942 and remains a beauty of a book to see on screen and between covers. Also on this DVD, The Story About Ping, a little duck who strays too far from home and lives with the consequences as well as the punishment, he was trying to avoid. This has long been a favorite. 3-8
