Flannel Ducks! You Know You Want Them!

Quack! Quack! Quack!

 We started our week celebrating the 75th birthday of Robert McCloskey's Make Way for Ducklings. This book was so perfectly marketed 75 years ago - one week into Spring.  And so it began with a conversation about Make Way for Ducklings and we just kept adding more ducks!

A little white duck went swimming in the water.  Little Duck, little Duck hid behind a big truck!

We painted a little line of ducks with our fingers - make way for our ducklings!  And we read books with ducks in the story.

I am now in the process of making ten little chicks.  Next week will be chick week.  Chick week, love that. Love the spotted hen as well.  She'll be with her babies on the flannel board.  Oh yeah!

Spring stories just make me happy.  Now if the weather in CT would cooperate.  Snow in the forecast for the weekend.  Not cool.

But this Duke Gardens ...way cool.  Maybe he'll find spring ducklings!

P.S. (Piper Script)  Tres chic!  Chick Week!  Should we start with Chicken Little?  
                                In it's entirety... this story could be terrifying!!
