The Flightless Goose Story Book Review

The Flightless Goose is a wonderful children's story book written by Eric R. Goodman and illustrated by Nataliya A. Goodman. It is a story about a goose named Gilbert, who loves to get involve with many activities like running, swimming, flying, and playing with his other geese friends. Due to Gilbert's accident, he was unable to fly south for the winter with the rest of his friends. He ended up left behind in the cold snowy weather.

Flightless Goose is a story based around a real goose which lived on a lake in Columbus, Ohio. Due to some unfortunate circumstances, the goose was unable to fly south for the winter with the other geese. Eric and Nataliya Goodman, after witnessing the incident, named the goose Gilbert, and envisioned a beautiful tale that would delight children, while subtly teaching them lessons about self worth, tolerance, and friendship.

A read-along CD was also included with the book. It was a nice bonus. When I am not able to read the story to Brandon, he could listen to the story from the CD. The sound effects really made the story interesting for him. Brandon loves storytime. I read it to him as his bedtime story.

The book is available for purchase at Writer's Lair Books or on
