Maude and Arnold, Canadian geese, had made their yearly trip from Canada to Wisconsin to lay their eggs and raise their goslings in a warmer climate. This year, seven eggs had hatched and among them were Lilly and Scooter, goslings who became greatly attached to one another. During their first year of life, the young goslings learn the ways of life and how to fly. All the goslings were succeeding with their life lessons from Maude and Arnold except for Scooter. When Scooter began to struggle, it was Lilly who stepped up to help him measure up to the rest of the flock!
The Canada Goslings Lilly and Scooter: A Lesson Learned by Patricia A. Thorpe is a beautifully designed and written children’s picture book containing the themes of migration, self-confidence, willpower, and friendship. The design and layout of the book are done to perfection using vibrant illustrations and interesting colors with the text. Patricia A. Thorpe has utilized the opportunity of presenting to readers not only one plot theme in this book, but two! First, the author explains to readers how the two main characters, Maude and Arnold, migrate and ends by using the gosling characters of Lilly and Scooter to demonstrate the other plot theme of never giving up. Having two plots for children to learn from in one short picture book is fantastic for young readers. Parents, librarians, teachers, and children ages pre-K to 2nd grade would benefit from reading this entertaining and educational book.
