Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K–The adorable Duck and Goose are back. Decked out in brightly colored wooly caps, the intrepid Goose tries his hand (well, wing) at all kinds of winter activities–catching snowflakes, sledding, making snow angels and elaborate snow geese and snow forts–while Duck tries to keep him focused on what really matters. Because, of course, it is really time for Christmas, which is represented by the birds decorating a tree. It seems a little sad that Duck is such a killjoy, stopping Goose from enjoying his winter fun, but that's a minor quibble. And the cover glitters! Cheery holiday fare for pre-readers.Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library

Duck and Goose are back again, and this time Goose is trying hard to enjoy the winter weather! Goose wants to catch snowflakes, make snow angels, sled, and more, but Duck keeps telling him, "It's not time". Well then, just what time is it for?! That question is answered on the last page (and well, on the cover too!). Very simple text coupled with Hills' adorable feathery fowl, and you have a splendid holiday treat to share with your toddler. They will love to pour over the pages again and again, simply to take joy in the friendship that is Duck & Goose.

I'm very surprised by so many positive reviews for this book. We got it for my 1 year old, hoping to introduce him to things like Santa, Christmas trees, snowmen, raindeer, any if the typical things children associate with Christmas. This book has nothing to do with any of it.

I agree with the other reviewer that the overall tone is negative. There us no story. Each page says "it is not time for -----" (insert winter snow activity). The last page says "it's time for Christmas." We live in an area where there is often snow at Christmas, so I don't see why Christmas time isn't time for snow activities.

Others have mentioned the illustration. It's fine, but VERY simplistic. Each page is duck and goose laying in/standing on snow.

I wish we could return this book but we received it as a gift (I did add it to our wish list after reading all the positive reviews).

bought this board book for my grandaughter--may keep it for myself it is so cute--was sent promptly from Amazon and in excellent condition. The story and pictures are just wondreful. Can hardly wait til Christmas for Caroline to open it--but then again we may just open one present early.

I have a 6 month old daughter who LOVES to listen to me read to her. When I read the Duck & Goose books, she smiles and touches the pictures. Hills not only writes the stories, he illustrates the stories, too. He is a very talented children's book author and illustrator. It's Time for Christmas is a cute story about winter activities and what the Christmas season is all about.

Tad Hills has hit the nail square on the head with his Duck and Goose books. I am still trying to figure out how he manages to have such simply drawn characters show such expression. I love each one of his titles, but Duck & Goose; it's Time for Christmas is a cut above. Its size, its bright pictures, and especially that it is written with a pattern that young children will easily begin to help read the story makes this a first choice for beginning literacy.

This is a holiday story in the wonderful "duck and goose" series. My 19 month old grandson loves the "duck and goose" books and this one, with it's Christmas theme, gives us a break from reading the non-seasonal books in the series. My grandson asks for this book almost nightly. It's sturdy cardboard with great illustrations and is perfect for toddlers.

All the little ones on my list are getting this book for Christmas this year!

I have been a fan of Tad Hills since I read his How Rocket Learned to Read (one of my FAVORITE children's books), but this was my first encounter with his Duck and Goose series. The only thing I don't like about them is that I didn't discover them sooner!

Goose is on the loose, making a snow goose, snowballs, snowangels, and sledding, but it's not time for any of that! It's time for Christmas!

Even though I don't have little ones young enough to still ask for board books, I put this one past the 5 year old test and it passed with flying colors! He liked that he could read it himself, and especially loved that Goose was having so much fun in the snow!

I highly recommend ANY Duck & Goose book by Tad Hills - since I read this one, I can't go into a bookstore without picking up some of the other ones, and I love them ALL.

Enjoy!

I read the reviews and was expecting a cute Christmas book to add to our collection. I found it to be disappointing. Yes the illustrations are cute, but I found the overall tone negative. "no it's not time for snow angels/playing/etc....then the last line is it's "time for Christmas"...huh? Just my opinion...it would of made more sense to me if at the end they tied in a deeper Christmas meaning, keeping it in line with what makes sense to pre-schoolers of course. Anyway I guess there's a following for the Duck & Goose books, I don't think we will be adding any more to our collection.
