My kid is now 14. I read this to her before 1st grade. It still keeps its value. Just awesome.
She has said that the illustration of the dream has helped her deal with bad dreams.
I found the book interesting: it took at least two reads to connect the fore-piece to the rest of the story and understand the whole plot.
Every page counts, sometimes twice.
It is wonderful, exciting, good, and happy. And has depth that an adult can appriciate.

This book is one of my all time favorites. I started reading to my children when they were babies - it has great rythm. It is delightful for adults, and my children have always been riveted. My one year old twins stop whatever they are doing to listen to the story whenever I start reading it. (I even "read" it to them in the car or bath because it is an easy little poem to memorize!)

Written in rhyme, this book makes it easy for young readers to experience the thrill of reading all by themselves. Of course, the goose's antics only add to the excitement. This is a great book to motivate your preschooler to want to learn to read.

My daughter borrowed this book from her preschool library. Its an adorable little story that follows the adventures of a goose in pursuit of her freedom. My daughter likes thestory so much when it came time to return it to the library, she hid the book. Only after I ordered a replacement copy for the school library did she find the original copy and declared that we could keep the extra copy because the school didn't need two copies of the book.

A cute, worthwhile story sureto enchant the child-like dreamer in anyone.

This is just the most wonderful book, I can't recommend it enough. Of all our children's books (and we must have at least 100 or more) this is probably my all-time favorite. It is obviously a hidden gem since there so few reviews. My 6 year old daughter has loved it for years. The rhymes are so fun to read and there is plenty to enjoy for the adults too. The end is quite touching when you find out that the reason the goose got loose was because of seeing the wild geese flying overhead.

My daughter loved this book. She is ten now and on to chapter books but this book was so important to her when she was just beginning to read. We read it over and over and over. For a long time it was all she wanted to read. We also have a tape that sets the book to music. The rhyme of this story goes great to music. For a long time we listened/read this over and over in the car. The illustrations are so wonderful, this goose is so naughty, and the little girl is in every picture chasing this adventurous goose. It turns out the goose wants to fly high with the wild geese in the sky. At the end there is this beautiful dream sequence of the little girl dreaming of all the gooses adventures. Just a beautiful book. Thank You Steven Kellogg for your beautiful illustrations and thank you Reeve Lindbergh for the great story. I will always remember this book and how much my daughter loved it.
