In her follow up book to Goose, Goose Goes to School reminds me of a nursery rhyme we all might recall, “Mary Had a Little Lamb”. I’m sure we can all remember how Mary’s little lamb was forbidden to go to school with Mary. That sneaky little lamb did follow her to school which brings us to this new book, Goose Goes to School. Even though Sophie’s mother forbids goose from going to school with her, Sophie hears unusual sounds while walking to school with her mother. She keeps seeing little reminders of goose throughout the day and is sure she has spotted him several times. Who should suddenly appear in her classroom while the teacher isn’t looking? Who makes the children laugh and play?
Goose Goes to School is about friendship as well as a beloved pet. You can reminisce about “Mary and Her Little Lamb” as well as enjoy reading about a goose that loves being with his special friend. The illustrations are bright and colorful and just makes turning each page delightful. This book can be enjoyed by your little ones as well as in a group situation.
