Goose's Story

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Holly Meade. Animated paper collage enhances this story of an injured Canada goose that lands with a flock on a girl's pond. With empathetic language, Best tells the story from the girl's point of view. The girl watches the geese and notices how the one that lost a foot is ostracized by the rest. In September, all the geese are gone. Next March, the girl sees her goose no longer shunned but part of a family--one that by book's end includes seven babies.
