From School Library Journal
PreSchool-KAA storm is approaching and Big Gander Goose and Little Goosey need somewhere to hide. Each place they find is already occupied by another animal and though they are asked in, Little Goosey whispers, "I don't want anybody else when the thunder comes. Just me and you." With quiet understanding, the adult goose declines each invitation and the two birds eventually nestle together under a bush. What is most important in this repetitive story is the connection between Big Gander Goose and Little Goosey. It speaks to a small child's desire for exclusiveness with a parent or caregiver. The watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations support this connection, often showing Little Goosey peeking from behind the gander or snuggled up to his breast or against his outstretched wing. A comforting story to share at bedtime.AKaren James, Louisville Free Public Library, KY
