When one little girl tries to solve a big problem involving a goose on her roof, she enlists the help of her animal friends. Despite her best efforts, things don’t go as planned, and she ends up with additional challenges to navigate as well. The Goose on the Roof features rhymes, animal characters, and a theme of problem-solving. The order of the characters can serve as a memory game as the story builds up and unwinds. Children may also be encouraged to come up with their own ideas for how to solve the issue of the honking goose on the roof and the predicaments created by the other animals. Winner (1st place) of the 2020 Purple Dragonfly Book Awards in the animals/pets category (ebook), this children’s story highlights animals in a wholesome and engaging way.

There is a  Goose On The Roof of a little girls house and it just won’t stop honking. Honk, honk, honk, honk! The neighbors have some people at their house and want the girl to stop that goose from making so much noise, but she can’t, and neither can any of the animals that try to help her.  Then her dad comes outside with a ladder and  he’s able the goose off the roof.

This is such a cute book! The message is that if you need help with something, don’t be afraid to ask, and keep asking until you get the help you need. In this book that help came from her dad.

The story is told in rhyme and is easy for children to follow along and to understand what’s going on. This would be a great book for young children, day cares and kindergarten classes to have.

The illustrations are cute and colorful and I think children will love them as much as the story.
