To a child, family is at the core of its being, almost its entire world. Family is where children feel safe and important. The United Nations recognises the importance of family by celebrating 15th May as the International Day of Families. As parents, let’s do our bit to teach our kids to honour and appreciate this vital social unit.
Rather than the sledgehammer approach of conventional family themed books that talk about how great mom or dad is, we’ve chosen Make Way for Ducklings for our family themed literacy unit, an award-winning picture book about a warm and loving family unit… of ducks!
Anxious duck parents in search of a good home to raise their family in, the merry chaos of the Boston Public Gardens and eight baby ducklings named Jack, Kack, Lack, Mack, Nack, Ouack, Pack and Quack crossing a road helped along by a kind traffic policeman - you cannot go wrong with this unique book pick for kids!
A sneak peek into the book is available here, but we strongly recommend you buy a copy:
