April Sayre’s Book Honk, Honk, Goose! Canada Geese Start a Family

The male goose stood guard.

Honk! he honked
at the squirrels.

Honk! at the ducks.

Honk, hee-honk, honk!
at neighboring geese.

The day after the
chicks hatched,
the father and mother
took a stroll.

Twelve wobble goose
legs followed.

Honk, Honk, Goose: Canada Geese Start a Family debuts April 14, 2009.

Awards & Recognition
Reviews
  • *Starred Review "This book about two Canada geese that meet, mate, and raise their family has all the immediacy of a plot-based picture book and conveys personality without slipping into anthropomorphism." --Farida S. Dowler, School Library Journal, 4/1/2009
  • *Starred Review "A fun read-aloud grounded by great informational backmatter, Sayre's latest is one of the few picture books that give a nod to Father Goose."-Abby Nolan, Booklist
  • "Short sentences, easy vocabulary and onomatopoeia make this ideal for sharing with the youngest listeners, but there is enough story and information to make it a good choice for ornithologically minded mergent readers as well." -Kirkus
