Because I’ve been to Boston in the Fall…

What do ducklings, blueberries, and a harmonica all have in common? Robert McCloskey. I realize he’s probably not the most prolific writer I could have picked, but the ones he does have are well worth the reading. Most are set in the era and place they were written–mid-1940’s small town America, and the charm that he found is resonated in the characters he created. From the policeman who stops traffic for ducks, to the boy who found his music in a harmonica, you’ll come back again and again to visit the people and places that live on drawings and stories of Robert McCloskey.

Besides, this last fall we visited a park in Boston where the story of one of his books was based. Awesome.
