The Goose on the Roof by Sarah Sommer

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I thought this was such a cute children’s book! The illustrations were bright and colorful, and the story was so much fun.

The Goose on the Roof is about a little girl with a problem to solve. The problem is the goose that won’t stop honking on her roof! She is offered help by quite a few friends such as a dog, a flea, and so many other things, but it’s not until her father steps in that she is able to truly fix the problem.

The story was easy to read, and the kids really enjoyed following along. I liked that we were introduced to a lot of potential solutions that didn’t end up working out. It’s a good story about trying again, and not giving up.

The illustrations created by Martina Terzi were really great. I liked the bright, vibrant colors, and the detailed artwork on each page! The kids enjoyed looking at everything as we turned from one page to the next.

Overall, this is a fun story for children with an easy to understand story. I highly recommend it!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend The Goose on the Roof for any child preschool to middle-elementary!
