Amazing Book! Flightless Goose – Book & Website Review!

Hey All,

I received a review copy of this fabulous children’s book entitled Flightless Goose by Eric D. Goodman. I think this book tells a great the story that I’m sure you will love to read with your kids.  I read it with my teen. He’s a bit too old for this book, but it’s always nice to remind your teenagers of the important life lessons this book teaches.

This book is a wonderfully illustrated tale of overcoming adversity and building friendships.

Flightless Goose is a story about Gilbert the goose, who sadly has an accident that leaves him unable to fly. Due to this poor Gilbert becomes the subject of ridicule among his fellow bird friends, yet through it all that  he remains strong and does not allow the teasing to change his caring and loving attitude. He befriends a human little boy who is in a wheel chair. This friendship helps to remind Gilbert of how his uniqueness makes him special. Gilbert becomes strong in his legs due to his inability to fly. This strength ends up being an amazing life saver to all the geese. The geese ultimately praise Gilbert for being different and recognize they were wrong for not accepting Gilbert from the beginning.

The Flightless Goose is a great story filled with amazing drawings and  life lessons that any child reading it would benefit from. Lessons about friendship, acceptance…and just appreciating what makes a person and or Goose unique.

I also received the audio read along CD of the book as well as you can see in the picture at the beginning of the post, which is the perfect companion to this book especially for busy moms like myself. You can just pop this CD into your car for your child as you’re driving and have them listen to the story and use their vivid imaginations.

You can purchase Flightless Goose by visiting the parents page on there amazing interactive children’s website located at

And for a limited time you will receive the audio read along CD (like the one I received) when you purchase the book from the site.

The interactive website for the book is also a great learning tool and a source for activities and learning for any child. You should definitely sit down with your child and spend some time reading, learning, and playing on this fun children’s site.

I highly recommend this fantastic illustrated children’s book and I’m sure you will love this book and the site for your children as well.
