KIRKUS REVIEW

Amelia Goose rises from her cozy bed, strolls outside to greet the bees and birds (they answer back, cheerily), plays in the pond with Frog until bedtime, and then retires. That’s it for the plot—and Rong’s neatly finished collages follow suit, with basic, easily recognizable forms placed against bright sheets of opaque, uniform color, and smiles to be seen from start to finish. Between “Good morning, Amelia Goose!” and “Good night, Amelia Goose!” the text is big, brief, likewise simple, and, really, superfluous. A sunny tale to share with members of the diapered set who aren’t yet up to the emotional Sturm und Drang of Jane Simmons’s Daisy or Lucy Cousins’s Maisy. (Picture book. 2-4)
