Kid Konnection: Duck & Goose A Gift for Goose

Every weekend, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekly feature about anything related to children's books. This week I'm going to share with you a book starring two of my favorite picture book characters.

Summary: Kids will giggle along when they learn to read with beloved picture book book characters, Duck & Goose! Tad Hills the #1 New York Times bestselling author is back with another easy-to-read story.

Duck and Goose, the stars of the New York Times bestselling picture book series including Duck & Goose, Duck, Duck, Goose and Honk! Quack! Boo! and the bestselling board books including Duck & Goose Find a Pumpkin, and What’s up Duck? return in an all-new, easy-to-read book. Duck has a very nice gift for Goose, and the perfect box to put it in… maybe it’s too perfect! With predictable patterns, simple words, lots of repetition, and bright, colorful illustrations, young readers will love this new Duck & Goose book, which they can read all by themselves! -- Schwartz & Wade

Duck and Goose are back, starring in another great book in this series by bestselling author and illustrator Tad Hills. The one is titled DUCK & GOOSE: A GIFT FOR GOOSE, and it's going to appeal to even more fans. That's because A GIFT FOR GOOSE is perfect for early readers ages four to six.

A GIFT FOR GOOSE is adorable! Duck decides to give a beautifully wrapped gift to Goose. Goose loves it so much, but he mistakenly thinks that the box is the actual gift. Duck tries to explain, but Goose is busy collecting all of his special items to keep in the box. When Goose finally understands that his gift is inside the box, he opens it to discover another fantastic surprise!

It's hard to not fall in love with these two special characters. They are too cute thanks to Tad Hills precious illustrations, and they are both so sweet and funny. I thought A GIFT FOR GOOSE had a cute ending; and it is perfect for very early readers. The text is simple, with lots of repetition; and even the youngest of readers will find satisfaction in being able to read this book independently.

DUCK & GOOSE: A GIFT FOR GOOSE is the perfect addition to an already wonderful series. Highly recommended!

Thanks to the publisher for providing a review copy of this book.
