Silly Suzy Goose

by Petr Horacek

Candlewick 2004

Ages: 3 to 5

Topic: Great Read Alouds: Stories You Won't Want to Miss

This delightful Suzy Goose who ventures from her flock because she wants to be "different", tries to jump like a kangaroo, stretch high like a giraffe, and swim under water like a seal until she roars like a lion and he chases her back to the others, just in time. Full of action and beautiful graphics, this new picture book by a Czech illustrator will be a winner.

I also recommend his board book for little ones with intriguing cut outs called Bird, Fly High, Candlewick Press 2005.
