My sister and brother-in-law sent this adorable postcard to my 7- and 5-year-old. They always think of the kids when they’re traveling, and often bring them back fun souvenirs. We got this in the mail last week while Aunt J and Uncle K were in Boston.
“Make Way for Ducklings,” by Robert McCloskey, published in 1941, tells the story of a family of ducks who decide to make their home on an island in the lagoon at Boston Public Garden. The statue is a tribute to the ducklings featured in the book, as is aptly described on the back of the postcard.
But there’s one glaring problem …
What is a dukling? It’s not that hard to catch a typo, especially in the title.
