Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Amelia Goose wakes up in her comfy-looking wooden bed ("Good morning, Amelia Goose!"), stretches, and then goes outside to play. She greets Frog at the pond and they proceed to bounce on lily pads, sit on a log, chase around after fish, and play hide-and-seek in the reeds. Then it is time for Amelia Goose to go home. They gaily say goodbye, with Amelia Goose adding, "It's been a lovely day." On her way home, she says good night to birds and bees, who say good night to her in return. On the next spread, she's snugly in bed, with a reed necklace—a reminder of her day of play. Rong has provided the minimal narration for Amelia Goose's story, hand-lettering the sounds that the animals make along the way, and providing bright collages that match Amelia Goose's cheerful disposition. A Lovely Day is a pleasant book that might not bear endless repetitions. 2004, Candlewick Press, Ages 2 to 5.
—Abby McGanney Nolan
School Library Journal
PreS-After awakening in her bed, a young goose walks to the pond, greeting bees and birds along the way. She meets Frog and together they bounce on lily pads, play hide-and-seek, swim, and share other games until it is time for Amelia to return home. The vivid collage illustrations reflect the jubilant mood of the two friends as they spend the day together. Bright colors leap off the pages while a very white gosling dazzles the eye. Simple text and hand-lettered onomatopoeic words allow the pictures to take center stage and tell the story. Young children will enjoy observing these two companions who differ in appearance but delight in the same activities.-Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Amelia Goose rises from her cozy bed, strolls outside to greet the bees and birds (they answer back, cheerily), plays in the pond with Frog until bedtime, and then retires. That's it for the plot-and Rong's neatly finished collages follow suit, with basic, easily recognizable forms placed against bright sheets of opaque, uniform color, and smiles to be seen from start to finish. Between "Good morning, Amelia Goose!" and "Good night, Amelia Goose!" the text is big, brief, likewise simple, and, really, superfluous. A sunny tale to share with members of the diapered set who aren't yet up to the emotional Sturm und Drang of Jane Simmons's Daisy or Lucy Cousins's Maisy. (Picture book. 2-4)
