Silly Goose’s Big Story

Written and Illustrated by Keiko Kasza

Keiko Kasza writes and illustrates beautiful stories that help children learn in a fun, nonjudgmental way. Silly Goose’s Big Story is a fine example of this method. Silly Goose is a storyteller. His friends love to listen to his stories, but they want turns being the hero too. Goose always gets to be the hero in his stories. A wolf overhears the friends fighting. He jumps out to catch them and grabs goose – wanting him for lunch. The goose is in trouble when he learns that his friends can be heroes too. This is a great book to read and reread at home, or for a classroom to hear when taking turns can be challenging. It has pirates and kings and a t. rex. There is even a Wolf-Eating Monster! This book will appeal to a large group of children. Most children will be able to connect with this story in a variety of ways. It’s easier to deal with a goose that always wants to be the hero of the story than with one’s self. Nicely done!
