Review by Author Beverly Stowe McClure
A Delightful Story! Janoose's vacation on the farm is over. It's time to fly home, but she isn't even packed when the first flock of geese flies overhead. Molly the duck wants Janoose to stay with her and her duckling, Deedee. Janoose can't stay, however, for she has no job on the farm, but she does have a job at the lighthouse. So she packs her backpack to be ready to join the next flight of geese.
When a fox with sharp teeth tries to catch Deedee, and Janoose saves the baby duck, everything changes.
Why does the fox attack the farm animals? What does he want? Will he return? As it turns out, the fox has a good reason for chasing the farm animals, and it's not what you think. I'm not telling, but the fox's motives add a nice surprise to the story.
A goose that wears glasses, a fox up to no good, and a barnyard of farm animals make for a story that will delight young readers. Parents, be prepared to read it over and over to your children. Ms. Holiday's whimsical artwork and the expressions on the animals' faces, even to the smiling scarecrow, add a nice touch to the story.

This book is great for parents as well as children. You won't mind re-reading it a thousand times, which I am grateful for since my son wants me to read it to him everyday. He loves the animal characters especially the fox and DeeDee. The drawings are bright enough to catch your child's attention and realistic enough that your child can correctly identify what kind of animal each character is suppose to be.
This story,also,depicts bad and good behavior without being too scary to a 3 year old.

In the farm, all is well until the Naughty fox decides to stop for a little visit... well, a little visit that translates into bullying and terrorizing the little innocent ducklings. Luckily, Janoose the Goose is there to defend the duckling and chase the fox away. I impressed by the goose's bravery, the other farm animals decide it would be great if Janoose could stay at the farm and keep order, but Janoose is supposed to fly away soon, and besides, there are no jobs available for her at the farm.But if Janoose leaves, who will defend the other animals against
the fox? Will Janoose be able to stay, after all?

Janoose the Goose is a cute, engaging story that will be enjoyed by young children ages 3 to 8. My daughter, though she's old for the book,
read it with Interest and loved the illustrations. The artwork, done also by the author, fits the story well. The illustrations, though simple,are colorful and attractive and have a traditional style that I've always enjoyed in children's books. Janoose the Goose is a worthy addition to a any kid's or classroom shelf.
