The Day the Goose Got Loose
Just how much havoc can one goose cause? Take a gander at the chaos that results when a long-necked mischief-maker flies the coop. Soon the bull's broken through the fence, and cows and horses are galloping all over town. The stampede will go on until dawn--and the laughter will last even longer. Full color.

My daughter picked this one out tonight: Daddy, this is one we haven't read in a looooooonnnggg time! She was right, I had forgotten all about it. Which I realize is not a great compliment, but it's not really an earth-shattering story. However, it is very clever, and is probably worth at least 4 stars.

This book is a great way to introduce literacy to your classroom. Throughout the story there is a constant tone, the words rhymn.

This book tells the story of a goose who gets loose, in a farm, and all the chaos that ensues. Hilariously written in rhyming format, with wonderful illustrations that depicts exactly, the havoc the goose has created. I would recommend this book for first grade and up.
Beautifully illustrated, but like some of the other books in my Down on the Farm category, many of the illustrations are too busy for a large group of kids. Might work well for a one-on-one, but I doubt it would work for more than a handful of kids. Nice rhymes.
