Publisher's Summary

Starting and ending with adorable ducklings, this 60-year old story is still as charming today as it was when Viking first published it in 1941. A true classic, Make Way for Ducklings is sure to win yet another generation of fans!

What My 5 Year Old Thinks...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

My five year old would recommend this to his friends. He loves listening to it in the car.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Make Way for Ducklings?

My son loves hearing the names of all of the ducks. That's his favorite part.

Any additional comments?

If your child likes the original book then he/she will more than likely enjoy listening to this in the car. The narrator, sound quality, and production are solid.

Classic Story

My children are familiar with this story and enjoyed listening to Melba Sibrel's narration. They laughed at her funny voices for the ducks and giggled at the silly ducks throughout the story. I found the voices slightly crazy, but my children loved them.

Delightful reading of a classical story.

This story was a favorite of my children. Now it's a favorite of their children. They love to listen in the car or at home during quiet time.

6 year old daughter loved it!

Where does Make Way for Ducklings rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

We read this in our Kindergarten class this year and since we have to send the book back, I wanted to make sure she still had the story. She listens to it multiple times a day, and loves to say the baby ducks' names. Glad I purchased this one!<br/>

Performance not great

The narrator is a little much sometimes and uses extreme voices which ruin the story.
