Duck Duck Goose

Duck Duck Goose by Tad Hills.

Oh what joy!  A new Duck & Goose book!  I was very partial to the first in the series, and consider this a wonderful sequel.  Duck and Goose are still friends, but when a new duckling, Thistle, is added to the mix the threesome just doesn’t work.  Goose tries to play along with Thistle’s competitive games, but eventually heads off alone to look for butterflies.  It isn’t much later that Duck also gives up playing with Thistle and looks for Goose.  In the end, the two of them discover that they enjoy quiet times together after Thistle wins one last game.

The illustrations are as nice as the first, switching between white backgrounds and lush greenery.  The wording is equally child-friendly and made to read aloud. 

Perfect for a preschool storytime on ducks or friendship, I would also use this for a filler in any story time at all.  It is a winner!
