I fell in love with this story. I mean, how could I not. It’s about geese and the little boy who loves geese and wants to hatch some goose eggs. He tries to get money for an incubator for hatching the eggs but no one will help him.
So what does he do? Read the story to your child, grandchild, or just to yourself to find out.
It’s a cute story with colorful illustrations and written with lots of humor. It should put a big smile on your face and a giggle on your lips.
About the Reviewer
Storytelling is as much a part of me as breathing is to my body. I have found that as I tell stories, putting them on paper, it makes room for the other stories that are building and will need to be told soon.
I write for children because of their wonderful imaginations. They are the very best at believing that the probable can become possible.
Nothing is any better than when the reader climbs into the adventure and joins the journey with you.
