Of all the geese in this gaggle, there is only one smart goose. He also happens to be the goose that doesn’t quite fit in. When all the other geese are sparkling clean, this goose goes to bathe in the muddiest mud puddle he can find. But, when the wolf comes, he’s also the goose least likely to be spotted and chased around the farm. You see, the mud acts as a camouflage. When the other geese finally get the smart goose to spill his secret weapon, they all live in peace…until winter comes. As the first snow begins to fall, the smart goose heads for the nearest clean pond. But the other geese don’t understand why. They may not get it, but the children in storytime usually do!
This is another winner from Caroline Jayne Church. The illustrations are crisp, clear, colorful, and whimsical. It’s a great book for storytime!
