"Good afternoon, statue of 'Make Way for Ducklings.'/Good afternoon, Swan Boat."
Bookworm's interest at 14 months: He has pretty consistently enjoyed this one. It's one that he tends to pick off the shelf and make us read 4 or 5 times in a row.
"Wally stopped at the statue of Ted Williams, one of the greatest hitters that ever lived. As fans admired the statue, they waved, 'Hello, Wally!'"
Bookworm's interest at 15 months: He enjoyed it now and then when very young. He won't sit still for the whole thing now, but may in a few more months.
"One day the ducklings hatched out. First came Jack, then Kack, and then Lack, then Mack and Nack and Ouack and Pack and Quack. Mr. and Mrs. Mallard were bursting with pride. It was a great responsibility taking care of so many ducklings, and it kept them very busy."
Bookworm's interest at 14 months: The pages had been too delicate for him to handle until recently (14 months). I think the lack of color in the illustrations makes it hard to engage him at this point, but this would make a beautiful gift for an older child or one that a younger child can grow into.
