Lois McCloskey’s Make way for (Patriots) Duckling

Leave a comment

In preparation for the upcoming Super Bowl 52 game, Boston’s most famous ducklings certainly appear to be getting in the spirit. The Boston Public Garden’s iconic bronze Make Way for Ducklings statues are decked out in New England Patriots gear, with “Mrs Mallard” repping New England’s post-season slogan: “One More.”

The Patriots street team is to thank for the stunt, part of a campaign before this weekend’s game promoting Pats fandom and merch. The mother duck wore a scarf around her neck and a beanie atop her head, and the eight ducklings wore baby-sized Patriots jerseys.

Go Pats, go!

While I am a librarian , I am a reading cheerleader. The purpose of this library blog is to better promote reading and information literacy to my community. I love books, reading with my son, properly placed apostrophes, canoeing, locating the nearest Starbucks, cheering the Montreal Canadians, and Cherry Garcia ice cream.
