Boston’s Public Garden will move its annual “Duckling Day” Mother’s Day event online this year, as organizers seek to maintain some of the spirit of the kid-friendly gathering amid the COVID-19 pandemic that has led to the cancellation or postponement of so many other traditions.
Duckling Day will be held on the organization’s Facebook page May 10 starting at 12 p.m., the Friends of the Public Garden said in a statement Monday.
The broadcast runs for about 20 minutes, and it will feature a personal message from Mayor Martin J. Walsh and a video from Duckling Days past. WCVB-5 anchor Rhondella Richardson will do a live reading of Robert McCloskey’s “Make Way for Ducklings.”
On most years, hundreds of people dress up like characters in the book on Duckling Day to celebrate the classic children’s story with a parade, crafts, and circus games.

Following a rush for groceries and cleaning supplies, more Americans are looking to crack open a book.
As people remain sheltered in their homes due to the coronavirus outbreak, online shopping has surged as a replacement for an old-fashioned trip to the store. In addition to the overall boom in e-commerce spending, sales data reveals that following an initial stockpiling of goods, many online shoppers have shifted their focus to entertainment products such as books and games as they adjust to the new normal of life in quarantine.
E-commerce spending in the U.S. is up more than 30% from the beginning of March through mid-April compared with the same period last year, according to market research firm Rakuten Intelligence. That is significantly more growth — about 50% more —

LONDON (Reuters) – Spring is normally a busy season for Cambridge University Botanic Garden but as Britain enters its third week of enforced lockdown, visitors are absent – the lilacs and daffodils flowering for no one.
But the gardeners have found a way to ensure their 8,000-plus species do not go unappreciated, by starting free virtual tours that allow people to download the delights of Spring.
Their weekly “wellness wanders” are short videos which take the viewer around the 174-year-old garden.
In last week’s video, head of horticulture Sally Pettit, showed off springtime plants such as Narcissus “Jack Snipe” daffodils and Syringa “Buffon”, a type of lilac now beginning to flower.
Birdsong can be heard overhead as she walks around, describing light levels and the smell of different plants in the scented garden.
