K-Gr 2- A top-notch easy reader. A boy finds a goose egg that hatches and the gosling imprints on him. Then he finds a duck egg that hatches and the duckling imprints on the goose. What follows is a delightfully sweet case of "monkey see, monkey do" as each bird imitates its "mother." The vocabulary, sentence structure, large print, and ample white space are right on target for children just beginning to read on their own. The large, full-color illustrations are funny and expressive, showing Goose and Duck in the role of active children. Particularly memorable is the picture of Goose at the table eating spaghetti and Goose and Duck "helping" to wash a police car. It's rare to find a beginning reader with a story and illustrations that are this engaging, humorous, and educational.-Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GACopyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
