Product Description


"A very appealing picture salient facts about a goose from the egg hatching to the life of the full-grown goose." The School Librarian on My Goose Betsy; "Gentle, thought-provoking, and a real delight to read and read again... The pictures are enchanting, with lots of tiny details to pore over... A book to truly warm your heart." The Guardian on Jody's Beans; "Gentle Giant Octopus transforms the creature's reputation from gruesome to awesome, through inventive, magical illustrations and lyrical narrative, helping the reader to take in an impressive range of facts without effort." The Times Educational Supplement, Primary; "Full of facts and surprises...a distinguished array of artists and authors, and a (narrative) approach more serendipitous than encyclopaedic. Each book has an entirely original slant on its subject." The Guardian; "The best information books are so interesting that they make you want to find out more. The Read and Wonder books do just that." Margaret Meek, Emeritus Reader, Institute of Education, University of London --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

A Great Book 31 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is my three-year-old son's all-time favorite. The story is simple and easy to follow, but each page holds a new surprise to keep a young reader or listener interested right to the very end. 'My Goose Betsy' is very informative and tells of a goose laying and hatching her eggs - a phenomenon every child finds fascinating. It's prompted my son to ask all sorts of questions and helped him develop a greater interest, awareness, understanding and appreciation of the bird life all around us. The pictures are large and clear and realistic and expressive, and they perfectly illustrate the text. The narration is lively and fun. A very good book to add to your collection - you will read it over and over and over again.

Adorable for ALL ages! 8 July 2007
By Nancy M. Tepley-Mimbach - Published on
Originally, I purchased this book to read to my Grandchildren. I raise Geese and Ducks and thought the Grandkids would enjoy a storyline they could relate to 'Nana's Geese'. This book is well written, factual, AND entertaining for ALL ages. No matter how many times I read it to the Grandkids...I never tire of it myself!
