Duck and Goose by Tad Hills


Duck and Goose by Tad Hills

Duck and Goose find an egg. Who does it belong to? they ask. Duck says it is his because he saw it first. Goose says it is his because he touched it first. Little by little they agree that the most important thing is to look after the egg and decide to share it. But their parenting skills come to an abrupt end when a little bird tells them that their egg is really a ball. Delightfully funny story with rich paintings and strong main characters, which firmly establishes the positive aspects of learning to share.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.
