Synopsis

The Geese March in Step by Jean-Francois Dumont

Every morning at the farm, all the geese line up in a perfectly straight line and parade down to the pond. Igor, their leader, makes sure that they all march in perfect time. But no matter what she tries, little Zita just can't seem to keep the same beat as everyone else. Finally, Igor makes Zita march to the pond all by herself. She isn't alone for long, though! Soon all the other animals on the farm join in with the little goose's own special rhythm. With Zita to lead the way, the parade down to the pond is a good deal more joyful. Great fun to read aloud, this hilarious book has a wonderful message about the importance of creativity, imagination, and individuality.

Reviews

Booklist-Individuality and self-acceptance are strong themes in this celebration of unique talents. . . . A great choice for children who feel like they don't fit in with their peers.-
