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.
