Collage Obsession: Children's Literature

I'm late this week for Collage Obsession, but I'm slipping in under the wire (I hope). Here's my digital collage for the "children's literature or fairy tale" theme. I chose the book "Make Way for Ducklings", by Robert McCloskey. Image credits: holliewood, tumblefish studios, last door down the hall, google images, clearly vintage.

Lovely image, but I do not know the book, maybe it's a generation thing. Cheers

This is great. Believe it or not, this actually happened on one of our busy roads one morning. A mama and her ducklings crossing the street. All the traffic came to a stop and waited. And in morning rush hour too!!
