24 months - I found this one a tough read the first time even though I really enjoyed the cute story. This one works best if you really make an attempt to give each character their own voice when reading aloud to a small child. This eliminates the confusion over who said what and you can even skip read "duck said", "goose said" etc. ( )

Duck and Goose have a little bit of a problem. They find an egg and both want to keep it for their own. As the book continues their conflict begins to work itself out as they start to become friends.

Duck and Goose are not fond of each other at first but their funny interactions as they tend to the egg will delight children. This is a good book to teach about individuals' strengths .

This is a super cute book! the art is fantastic for the storyline, and any kid (and adult for that matter) would enjoy reading it for what ever reason. the story is cute in that it made me go back to a time when the kind of attitude demonstrated in the book was common occurrence...especially at recess! Again the art was perfect for the writing, hens a good picture book almost always seems to be those where the writer and illustrator are the same person. ( )

Book description
Duck and Goose find an egg that turns out to be a ball. The fight over the egg and try to make it their own, but in the end, they end up sharing the ball and playing with it together. This book is good for showing friendship and that it is okay to share. They were both wrong because they were trying to keep the 'egg' for themselves. I would use this is to teach theme or look for a central idea. We could also use this for foreshadowing.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 037583611X, Hardcover)

Here is the first book in the popular Duck & Goose line of picture books and board books. This New York Times Bestseller and ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book stars two unforgettable characters and is filled with humor that young children will appreciate—and recognize!

Like James Marshall’s George and Martha, and Rosemary Wells’s Benjamin and Tulip, Duck and Goose have to work at getting along. You see, Duck doesn’t much care for Goose at first, and Goose isn’t fond of Duck. But both want the egg that each claims to be his. As the two tend to their egg, and make plans for the future, they come to appreciate one another’s strengths. And when a bluebird points out that it isn’t really an egg—it’s a polka dot ball—the two are not dismayed. After all, it is a lovely ball. . . .
