KIRKUS REVIEW

This second ""Just for a Day Book"" is more successful than its predecessor, White Bear, Ice Bear (p. 469/C-77), perhaps because the experiences of the Canada goose here are less prone to false dramatization. This time it's a girl who imagines herself answering the call, becoming a goose and joining a flock as it travels the sky, swims in a pond, and feeds on grass. Rothman's broad double spreads colorfully evoke the landscape traversed and the many attitudes of the birds in flight and at rest. Readers should enjoy imagining, as the second-person text suggests, what it is like to be one of these beautiful birds.
