Book
Every spring, the geese touch down on the pond in a honking, flapping celebration. But this year, one of them is different. As it stands on one leg—shunned by the other geese, unable to search for food, to swim, or even to fly away—a young girl wonders: how can a goose with one foot survive?

“A heartwarming story with a tender message about accepting others in spite of their differences and helping those who are less able.” —Starred, School Library Journal

“Best’s simple prose is rhythmic and beautiful . . . Every child who has nursed an injured creature will recognize the bond, the distance, and the hope. ” —Starred, Booklist
