Children's LiteratureLars, a polar bear cub, finds an unhatched goose egg. When Lars is unable to find the mother goose, he decides to keep the egg warm until it hatches. His friend Lena, an Eskimo girl, asks him to play but Lars refuses; he faithfully stays with the egg. The egg finally hatches and Lars reunites the baby goose with his mother. The plot is reminiscent of the classic, Horton Hears a Who, by Dr. Suess. This is a sweet story that teaches about responsibility and keeping your promises. The adorable illustrations and colorful stickers will appeal to younger and older children alike. 2004, Sterling Publishing Co, Ages 3 to 7.
