KIRKUS REVIEW

 The team behind The World Is Full of Babies! (1996) allows readers to fly along with the child narrator on the back of a migrating goose. Once at the nesting ground, the geese lay their eggs; over the summer the goslings grow from little squirts to loud honkers. At the end of the season the geese and the girl head south, avoiding telephone wires and hunters' bullets. Ultimately the girl lands back in her soft, warm bed (with a comforter and pillow that look suspiciously downy). The watercolors are friendly and flighty, and facts on the last spread (ostensibly from the book the girl was reading before she fell asleep and dreamed the adventure) take care of questions that might arise from the tale. (Picture book. 4-7)
