Make Way for Ducklings
Robert McCloskey
0670451495
January 1941
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
It's not easy for duck parents to find a safe place to bring up their ducklings, but during a rest stop in Boston's Public Garden, Mr. and Mrs. Mallard think they just might have found the perfect spot--no foxes or turtles in sight, plenty of peanuts from pleasant passers-by, and the benevolent instincts of a kindly police officer to boot. Young readers will love the mother duck's proud, loving protection of her wee webbed ones, and those with fond memories of Boston will enjoy familiar locales, from Beacon Hill to Louisburg Square, and over the Charles River--often from a duck's-eye view. Robert McCloskey, creator of Blueberries for Sal, never fails to elicit happy story-time giggles from youngsters, and his soft, brown-toned, Caldecott-winning illustrations make this gentle world come alive. (Ages 3 to 8) --Karin...

Hatches II: A Complete Guide to the Hatches of North American Trout Streams

Review
"...if you want a book on hatches, this has got to be it."
--Steve Bodio, Gray's Sporting Journal

"Since its original publication in 1975, HATCHES has been a popular and important part of the entomological angling literature. Its major contribution has been the incredibly complete survey of trout stream mayflies. Certainly, no angling entomology had ever covered so many species from across the country; and no other book had ever provided so many important details about specific hatches. It represented a clear jump, not just an evolutionary shuffle, in mayfly knowledge for fly fishermen."
--Gary LaFontaine

"This classic guide to fishing the hatches of North American trout streams is truly a treasure for fly fishermen of all skills."
--The International Angler

The Hero Project: How We Met Our Greatest Heroes and What We Learned from Them

Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Eight years ago, when they were ages 11 and 14, brothers Robert and William Hatch embarked on this ambitious project: to interview their heroes and write a book about "how they have made America a better place." The 13 men and women interviewed here are not the usual boyhood heroes: along with athlete Lance Armstrong and movie star Jackie Chan, there is novelist Madelene l'Engle, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Blackfeet Indian activist Louise Pepion Cobell. The boys are inquisitive and sometimes probing, even urgent with a child's concerns; Will presses l'Engle, for instance, to explain how, after an unhappy childhood, she could forgive and become close to her parents. The conversations range widely: Pete Seeger talks about the civil rights movement and having rocks thrown at him during a concert with Paul Robeson;...
