  • Hey Goose! What's Your Excuse


Boone is a gosling, loving life on the water with his family. He feels safe and comfortable in his small corner of the pond, so why would he ever leave? When Boone's mom and siblings swim off to the opposite shore, he doesn't follow. He has his reasons, like the water is too cold and deep, and the other shore is too muddy. But when he sees his family having fun, he wonders what he's missing. Are they eating doughnuts, having a campfire, or will they see the elusive pond Yeti? Boone's curiosity soon grows bigger than his fears. He slowly paddles away from his safe space, taking readers on a journey that reveals why leaving your comfort zone can lead to exciting and unexpected places. 32 pages

    It is so cute and was enjoyed by all of my little ones. It’s about a goose named Boone who is afraid to cross the pond but ultimately decides to do it and good things happen! This book is perfect for teaching children not to be afraid to step out of their comfort zones and try new things!
