Duck & Goose: A Gift for Goose

(2) K-3 In this latest entry (and first early reader) about the feathered friends, Duck presents a package to Goose, who thinks the box is the present: "This box is not your gift." "It is not mine?" A page-turn brings resolution: it is your box, Goose, but look what's inside. Age-appropriate foreshadowing, vocabulary repetition, visual jokes and recognizable emotions in unfussy illustrations, and a good payoff make for an enjoyable outing.
