   They don't make Children's Literature better than this!
Since I came over What'; s Up, Duck? my granddaughter and I have been fans of Duck and Goose. Sometime back, Opposites published a book of its own. Since then, we've read How Are YOU Feeling?, Goose Needs a Hug and Duck and Goose Find a Pumpkin. But nothing had prepared me for the beauty and sweetness of this origin story. Initially squaring on over who has rights to what they erroneously think is an egg, Duck and Goose learn by working together in caring for their supposed treasure to be fast friends, deeply appreciative of each others unique properties. The final pages of this beautiful illustrated and touching story had me in tears especially the last two words on a page of their own.

   Duck and Goose
This book was the first one that my granddaughter wanted to read when she received it for her birthday. The pictures are intelligent and the narrative is vibrant. At five, my granddaughter is divided between the toddler generosity of wanting to give her toys to everyone she loves and the possessiveness of the early elementary schooler, and this book addresses this conjuncture very well. Both Duck and Goose often stumble at a ball at the same time and claim it, though they are not sure what it is. After some discussion, they decide it's an egg and they argue about which one of them should take care of it until it hatches. When they discover it's a ball, they decide to share it, and their rivalry dissolves into friendship. Good for the second through pre-schooler group.

   Cute story, longer and more involved than the other D&G books
We are obsessed with all the duck and goose books around here, so don 't read this review in the wrong way. I love this book and recommend it highly. Just note that it is slightly older and skews more of a story than the other duck and goose books we have. Those books are all bite-sized in terms of plot and word count. An FYI is just an FYI.

   More than funny with great pictures
This book was highly recommended in a magazine I subscribe to and after reading the reviews here I decided to purchase it for my two-year-old son. It is not in his top ten favorites, but he really likes it. A nice part of the storyline that I hadn 't anticipated was that it clearly demonstrates the stages that toddlers go through with their friends. As all parents of toddlers know, sharing is a very difficult thing to do for little ones. This book demonstrates this problem accurately and comically, but gradually the duck and goose begin to share their egg, realizing that they can both care for it and enjoy it. I highly recommend '' this book. I gave it four out of five stars because, although I can 't put my finger on it, I feel it lacks the spark that makes a book really special. I am sorry that I can not be more specific.

   Adorable!
Every child should have a collection of familiar hardcover, forever books that he or she can return to whenever they want. This is a great start.

   Adorable illustrations, a little bit of a tongue twister to read
The overall message of this book is about teamwork, and I liked the incorporation of a few larger words. When reading aloud to my son, I find it difficult to read at a steady pace without being tongue bound over the repetitive use of goose honked. '' Duck quacked. These two characters also have a little attitude in their dialogue, but learn to work together and even become friends in the end.

   Not the best in the series.
It was cute at times, but I was ultimately quite underwhelmed. It was so not exactly the Sixth Sense. It is a nice story that shows two characters sharing and not arguing, who learn to share and be friends through their stubbornness. I like this message, but it was an awful like to repeat the same thing over and over again to get to that message. I like the Duck and Goose series in general, but this was kind of a swing and a miss for me.
