Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This rhymed story begins with gosling Lucy living comfortably and safely inside her shell, but then her shell cracks and she is out in the world along with her three brothers and one sister. Her mother teaches them all how to find food and how to swim, but Lucy's attention wanders and she does things on her own. Then, one day her mother tells the goslings that the weather will be getting cold, so they will all head down to Texas. She explains how they should all stick together but Lucy ignores that advice. Lucy convinces herself that she will be better off flying alone. She refuses to join in the vee. Lucy soon finds that flying alone can be lonely and frightening, but the other geese turn up just in time to save her. The illustrations enhance the story, exhibiting a love of, and appreciation for, nature. 2006, Starseed Press, Ages 4 to 7.
