Unereel
I bought this book in an effort to start exposing my children to non traditional families (as we don't have any in our immediate surroundings) but honestly, as someone who graduated in literature, I find the whole plot a bit strained. Maybe it's just my generation or me being an annoying adult, but there is not much natural in a Goose that goes around asking to chicken to give him an egg because he would want a little bird of his own. I feel my children are slightly puzzled to. In my opinion this book does not provide enough logical explanation to the whole situation. My children are not ever asking to read this again either, which pretty much says it all. I'll be waiting for something written with a bit more narrative genius...

I love this book so much that I bought a copy for my son's classroom. In addition to it being a cute story, it also touches on themes of adoption, parent-child unconditional love, single fatherhood, and pursuing parenthood via an atypical route. My partner and I adopted our son. I particularly like having this book in our library because I want our son to know that he can be a father someday, and that his role as a father will be important in his child's life.

There aren't very many adoptive child stories that present a father looking for his child. I love that this book is a special story my husband can share with our adopted son. I love the story and illustrations!

Very cute book!

It has a couple things I really like. First, it's about a dad adopting (though that's diminished by some gender confusion). Second, the usual "You look kind of like me, are you my mommy?" plot (much shorter than Choco or Ms. Spider) is kicked off by someone on the playground saying "You don't look like your parent. You're not really his child." That's the metaphor, at least. That could be a useful idea to have in our library.

A couple things I don't like as much: First, the dinosaur keeps calling his father his mother. He gets corrected at the end, but the father aspect was a big draw for me and they really diminish it with a simple word choice for no good reason. Second, the father goose starts by going around asking hens for their eggs. That doesn't really fit our adoption experience and feels awkward to me.
It's so easy
You could hardly do better than to get "The Little Green Goose" for any father, whether adoptive or biological. Adele Sansone's text is a miracle of economy, covering parenthood, adoption, geneaology, and more with a minimum of fuss and text.
The barnyard goose decides that he wants to be a father, but as he has no wife or other partner, he decides to adopt a spooky looking green egg found by the dog at the edge of a field. The goose settles himself on top of the eggs and waits and waits. When the egg finally cracks open, what emerges is some sort of lizard or dinosaur or who knows what--but it definitely is not a goose. Still, Sansone's goose dad utterly ignores the differences between himself and his new son and makes a natural (and skillful) parent. When the "green goose" decides to try to figure out what his real background is, he has little luck and ends up coming home to the goose--who, after all, is the only parent he's ever known.
The illustrations, by Alan Mark, are utterly charming. The "green goose" is splotched and splashed with color, while the goose is drawn sparingly and convincingly. This is, overall, a fun tale with subtle and valuable life lessons.
I like this book for the message the other reviewers shared regarding the "child's" journey however I also appreciate the underlying message about parents. The goose longed for a child, did not feel complete without a child and then when he finally gets a "child", the "child" is not what he had imagined. However, it doesn't matter, this is his child, green scales and all. A book for BOTH child and parent.
