    Highly Recommended

    I made a Duck Duck Goose quilt for my nephew who is 4 for Christmas. I sat down and read the book and thought how adorable it would be for the book to go with the quilt.Book is colorful and so adorable.

    Reviewed by Jennifer Wardrip, aka "The Genius" for Kids @

    My kids and I giggled our way through DUCK & GOOSE, Tad Hills' first book starring these two lovable characters. With DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE, our favorite quacker and honker are back -- but this time there's another character thrown into the mix, and three is most definitely a crowd. <BR/><BR/>Duck is very excited to introduce Thistle, the new duck who just moved into the area, to his best friend Goose. And, at first, Goose is just as happy to meet this new duck. <BR/><BR/>That is, until Goose soon learns that Thistle is the best at everything, and I mean everything! She's the fastest, she's the best at math, she's had three butterflies land on her bill at the same time (compared to Goose's one), she can hold her breath the longest, run up the hill the fastest, and...well, the list goes on and on. <BR/><BR/>Goose learns very quickly that Thistle is the best, and that no one else can ever hope to measure up. And yet he's tired of everything always being turned into a contest. So he has no choice but to leave Duck and Thistle to their own devices and rest, by himself, behind his and Duck's favorite bush. <BR/><BR/>DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE is a wonderful book, about meeting new people, the spirit of competition, and the true meaning of friendship. Both toddlers and older readers will be enchanted, once again, by Tad Hills' brilliant illustrations, and the story will have them alternately laughing-out-loud and commiserating with how left out and lonely Goose feels. <BR/><BR/>This one is another winner, and definitely deserves a place on your keeper shelf!

    Duck, Duck, Goose ......... Molly's Reviews

    My resident critics, 4th grade, gathered to hear our latest `for review.¿ They take their job as resident critics very seriously as they listen with care, note illustrations, judge whether the book is best suited for their age or for students older or younger. They are hard taskmasters and do not suffer poor writers or poor artists lightly. Duck, Duck, Goose met every test and passed with high marks. The children agreed the book holds listener interest, that it is probably meant for a slightly younger audience than grown up 4th graders and that the writer has a good message to present. Braggart Thistle was recognized for her boasting and showing off. Illustrations are child pleasing. One student thought she might like to borrow the book to read to a younger sister. All agreed that boastful crowing makes for tiresome relationships. The kids all `got the joke¿ as Thistle missed out on fun by having to continue to nap so that she could win the nap contest. The work provided discussion fodder for us as we talked about friends who have treated us in the manner of Thistle and how we don¿t really enjoy their company. We talked about what makes for good friends and whether or not we need to compete on every hand.
