Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sarah Maury Swan
Duck is walking in the snow with his friend Goose. Duck has a purpose, but Goose wants to play. So Duck tells Goose that it is not time for catching snowflakes. Then Goose must be told it is not time for sledding, nor is it time for making snow angels. Goose also learns it is not time for throwing snowballs and it is not time for making a snowgoose. Duck tells Goose it is not time to skate, which is a good thing, because Goose does not skate very well. He does make quite a handsome snow fort, even though it is not time for doing that either. The next to last scene is Duck calling to Goose to come on as he holds a star behind his back and stands near two other birds decorating a fir tree. When Goose comes, Duck tells him it is time for Christmas and Goose stands on Duck's head to put the star on top of the tree. A cute story with nice repetition of the phrase "It is not time for..." makes this a child pleaser. The expressions on Duck and Goose's faces add to the story's charm. This is part of the "Duck and Goose" series. Reviewer: Sarah Maury Swan
School Library Journal
PreS-K—The adorable Duck and Goose are back. Decked out in brightly colored wooly caps, the intrepid Goose tries his hand (well, wing) at all kinds of winter activities—catching snowflakes, sledding, making snow angels and elaborate snow geese and snow forts—while Duck tries to keep him focused on what really matters. Because, of course, it is really time for Christmas, which is represented by the birds decorating a tree. It seems a little sad that Duck is such a killjoy, stopping Goose from enjoying his winter fun, but that's a minor quibble. And the cover glitters! Cheery holiday fare for pre-readers.—Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library
