Thinga-Appreciation Giveaway #20
For the next two weeks we’ll give away this collection of six bird-themed books-on-DVD from Scholastic.
Make Way for Ducklings, the masterpiece (my word) originally written and illustrated by Robert McCloskey, follows Mr. and Mrs.
Mallard as they look for the perfect spot to raise their young, and find it in
the most unlikely place.
The other stores on the DVD are: The Story about Ping, The Ugly Duckling, Angus and the Ducks, Cat and Canary and Wings: A Tale of Two Chickens.
