About the Author

Robert McCloskey (1914-2003) wrote and illustrated some of the most celebrated children’s books ever published. Both Make Way for Ducklings and Time of Wonder were awarded the Caldecott Medal for the most distinguished picture book of the year, and Blueberries for Sal and One Morning in Maine were named Caldecott Honor Books. 
McCloskey grew up in Hamilton, Ohio, the setting for Homer Price, his portrait of a quintessential American boyhood. He studied art at Vesper George School of Art in Boston, and continued his studies at the National Academy of Design in New York. He was awarded the Prix de Rome, but delayed his study abroad until after World War II. Subsequently he and his wife, Margaret Durand, moved to Maine, where their two daughters were raised, and where McCloskey found inspiration for many of his books.
Robert McCloskey’s ducklings are immortalized as bronze statues in Boston’s Public Gardens, and are visited by countless children. He leaves a legacy of books that have proved enduringly beloved.

This is a wonderful book with line drawings that engage babies and a gentle story for littles as they are learning to read and count. Scary circumstances are addressed like changing homes, encountering bigger and faster kids, navigating streets, and even Daddy being gone for a time. I've been reading this to our grandson since he was a baby and he's still content to hear it at 4 years old. It can be a quiet place in his busy day.
