Duck and Goose: Goose Needs a Hug
by Tad Hills
Ages 1-3 22 pages Schwartz and Wade December 2012 Board book    

Goose visits his young friends when heís feeling sad. Before he can ask them for what he needs--a hug--however, his request is interrupted by games of hide and seek, tag, and puddle-splashing.

His friends (Thistle, Bluebird, and Duck) want to cheer him up, but because they donít listen to Goose, their suggestions exasperate him. A shout from Goose gets their attention and results in a group hug, an idea that cheers everyone up.

Summer scenes of blue skies and vast green landscapes are rendered in oil paints and colored pencils on double-page spreads. The comical illustrations (Gooseís friends appear from smallest to largest as they perform headstands) and closeups of expressions add appeal to this story about friends comforting friends.

Pair Goose Needs a Hug with the authorís book Duck and Goose: How Are You Feeling? when introducing toddlers to stories about emotions.
