When young duck and goose find a large, multi-colored, spotted "egg," bickering ensues. "I saw it first," proclaims Duck. "I touched it first," smirks Goose, putting one webbed foot on the egg. As the argument continues, over whose egg it is, and who will keep it warm until it hatches, a small blue bird looks on.

When the dust settles and feathers are unruffled, both Duck & Goose are atop the egg. As time passes, their arguments end, and they both begin to think of what they'll teach "their" little baby. "I'll teach it to quack like a duck," says Duck. "I'll teach it to honk like a goose," says Goose. "We'll teach it to fly," they both agree. And a tentative friendship is born.

Until that same little blue bird flies down to ask to join in their fun--asks, in fact, if she can play with their ball. "Ball?" they ask. "Well, of course we knew it was a ball. We had our doubts all along!"

This is a funny, delightful book with beautiful illustrations that any child can enjoy. A perfect bedtime story!

Duck and Goose both find an egg in the field. They claim the egg for themselves, but end up sitting on it together. They argue with each other about what they are going to teach it. Eventually, they become friends. The egg moves and both hop off, eager to see the new hatchling. But it's only another bird who would like to play with their ball. Duck and Goose realize that it is a ball and begin to play with it.

Why I recommend it: The arguments between two people who have yet to become friends is classic. The drawings are bright and colorful.
