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
