Goose Goes to School by Laura Wall - ADVISABLE

Wall, Laura Goose Goes to School. HarperCollins Publisher, 2016. $15.99. PICTURE BOOK. Sophie is best friends with her pet Goose.  They have many great adventures together.  Today is Sophie's first day of school.  But Goose can't go with her.  Mom says geese aren't allowed in school. Sophie is sad but gets ready to go.  As mom and Sophie are walking to school, Sophie thinks she might hear flappy footsteps behind her?  Does Goose follow her to school? What happens if he does? Read to find out how this incredibly illustrated children's book explores many firsts, many friendships, and much, much more.  We enjoyed this book.  The pages are cheery and easy to read. With each turn of the page, the colored background changes to bright, happy colors of purple, green, blue, orange, and yellow.  Often times, goose is hiding in the illustrations and children will have fun trying to find him.  We enjoyed this book!  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  ADVISABLE. Reviewer: SL.
