...an inviting yet suspenseful tale of migration, loss and accomplishment. Realistic black-and-white illustrations add just the right touch.

...a tale of adventure, bravery, acceptance, and coming of age.

The first and last chapters of this book provide a beautiful frame around this simple story about a group of pond geese who overcome their fears and enter into a great adventure together. This story is not just about migrating geese, it is about leaving your comfort zone to follow your dreams and become all you were destined to be. I really liked this one 5 *****.
