Duck is very excited to introduce Goose to his new friend Thistle, but Goose is overwhelmed by Thistle's desire to make everything into a competition that she will invariable win. Will Duck ever see the problem that Goose sees?

Duck and Goose is a popular series of which I've only read one other book (What's Up, Duck?), and I must confess I enjoyed this book less than that one. This book was clearly trying to tell a moral about Thistle's overly competitive nature but somehow fell just a little bit short of successfully doing so while remaining entertaining. It was definitely over the heads of the children in my toddler class, but I could see it being useful for younger elementary school-aged children who have a tendency to try to be the best at everything (or are dealing with someone who has that personality). The illustrations are as fun as the other Duck and Goose titles, with energetic and bright oil paintings covering every page. ( )

When Goose's best friend Duck brings another duck, Thistle, to play with them, Goose is annoyed by Thistle's tendency to brag that she is the best at everything and by the attention Duck is paying to his new friend. Thistle tries to challenge Goose to a variety of things, and Goose is finally fed up enough to wander away. His friendship with Duck is ultimately shown to be strong when Duck comes looking for him in the meadow and helps him figure out a way to get rid of Thistle. This is a great picture book for showing how annoying bragging about everything can be and for showing the strength of friendships. It includes detailed illustrations that portray the emotions of the characters well. It would work well in a story time or class room setting for early elementary school students. ( )

I think this teaches children to be good friends, and you don't always have to compete. It's cute, and the characters are easy to relate to!

A story of a duck and goose who are friends and duck brings along another friend. She challenges them to anything and beats them. Goose does not like it and just wants to enjoy the nature or play ball. They finally can do that when thistle falls asleep and they play ball.

This picture book tells of the adventures of Duck, Goose, and Thistle, and how they deal with competitiveness and friendship.

Duck & Goose, Goose & Duck. Feathered friends forever . . . or are they? That's what we discover in this charming and hilarious follow-up to the bestselling Duck & Goose. You see, there's a challenge to their friendship: a little whippersnapper of a duck named Thistle. Thistle's good at everything (or so she thinks), from math to holding her breath to standing on her head. Duck thinks she's fantastic. But Goose does not! And so Goose is faced with a problem close to the hearts of children everywhere: what happens when your best friend makes a new friend?

 

And don't miss Duck and Goose in Tad Hills's six board books, including What's Up, Duck? and Duck & Goose Find a Pumpkin.
