Mr. and Mrs. Mallard are looking everywhere for a home to raise their ducklings. Tired from searching all day, they land in Boston to rest. It just so happens they find Boston to be the best place and decide to stay even though people, cars, and bikes pose a threat to their way of life. Mrs. Mallard teaches the ducklings how to survive in order to one day cross the busy streets to adventure to the park. With the help of the police officers, the ducks make it safely across and enjoy their new home.

This classic Caldecott winner is about kindness and friendship but also shows how people and nature have intertwined throughout the years. The brown penciled illustrations have a softness to them that exhibit detail and help guide the reader through the text.
