    One thought on “The Geese March in Step”

    1. This is a fun book to read to your kid. It introduces the reader to counting, rhythm, and animal sounds. I read this to my two-month old while she was chilling out on her back and she was smiling every time I counted "one, two; one, two(tap)" and tapping her on the tummy. She also liked it when I read aloud the farm animal sounds like "peck peck peck" "Heeeee hawww" at different paces. Some of the sounds written in the book go on a little too long but still fun to read. Obviously she didn't foll [...]

    2. Igor leads the geese to the pond every day for their swim. One day little Zita gets off the one,two rhythm and Igor tells her she can do longer march with the flock. Sad little Zits must go alone. On her way the other farm animals her her own rhythm and decide to join her march. When they finally arrive at the pond, Igor is shocked to see so many farm animals marching with Zita.teaching application- It's time to get out the rhythm. instruments to create different beats the children can imitate.

    3. "The Geese March in Step" written and illustrated by Jean-Francois Dumont is a book that follows a group of geese on a farm. In this story, Igor leads a group of geese to the pond on a daily basis and he is in charge of making sure they march in perfect time. However, a new goose named, Zita, has trouble marching in time and throws off the whole group. Eventually she makes it to the pond with all of the other farm animals following closely behind. Piglets, a woodpecker, sheep, and other animals [...]

    4. Well, I see this title and think about what "goose-stepping" means to me -- and the story does start out with a group of geese lead by a martinet named Ivan. Uh.(Keep in mind that this is by a French author/illustrator, and it makes a little more sense)But it gets better. Of course there's always one person who isn't going to march in step, and here it's the new goose, Zita. Ivan kicks her out of the line, and she starts doing her own thing. And the other animals on the farm looovvveeee the new [...]

    5. really cute book. adorable soft, rounded oil illustrations. Nice message about being yourself and could start a discussion on whether tradition is always the most important reason to follow a tradition. I think if I read it aloud I would want to incorporate all the interesting animal sounds, but it would be hard to do that as a single reader, I think you'd need volunteers to do all the sounds at once like an orchestra of sortsort enough for preschoolers, well designed endpapers- like ducks learn [...]

    6. This story's message is pretty universal, but also not very original. March to the beat of your own drum. It's a pretty basic story, and the uniqueness is really in the "sound effects" text that could make this interesting to read aloud with students. That alone might make this engaging to students, plus the animal characters are fun, but there isn't much here. There certainly isn't a clear connection to social studies, with virtually no social studies content or any description of an issue 0/3

    7. Igor is a tough geese taskmaster, and he works hard to make sure that all the geese stay in line. But Zita is a young, inexperienced goose, and she finds it hard to march to the beat Igor expects. But when Zita starts moving to her own beat and at her own pace, others end up following her. With its sunny illustrations and sounds, this picture book provides ready inspiration for anyone celebrating being true to oneself. There is a great lesson here for everyone.

    8. This is the second book I have reviewed by Dumont; the first was about chickens building a wall. But, neither book is really about chickens or geese. They are about society and acceptance. I was reminded of Thoreau's words about hearing a different drummer, and the little goose in this book certainly hears her own beat and can't help but follow it. I recommend these books for school libraries. They are fun and educational - a winning combination.

    9. Dumont's picture book embodies the notion of marching to the beat of your own drummer. This a great book to demonstrate the importance of being unique and that sometimes being different isn't a "bad" thing. There's a time for conformity and a time to stand out and shine, this little goose broke the mold and discovered her time to shine inspired others too. The book is a little lengthy for storytime, however I would recommend this to parents to read one one one with their child at home.

    10. A rather interesting story featuring a little goose who marches to her own drummer.And leads the rest of the barnyard with her on her daily march to the pond.I have to admit I liked it better the second time I read it to Lexi, today, December 1, 2014. When I added the tapping sounds and then the barnyard sounds, Lexi was much more interested in the book.

    11. Zita is a little goose who can't keep the time and is banish from the geese patrol. However her march to the pond brings others to her rythm.Why I started it: New picture books in the library this one caught my eye.Why I finished it: Charming but I would have to invest lots of practice before I attempted to read this at Story Time.

    12. "Zita just can't seem to march to the same beat as the rest of the geese, but before long, she realizes, as do the other barnyard animals, that her own special rhythm is just right"-- Provided by publisher.

    13. A short book with a great message of finding your own way even when you feel left out of the popular way. My daughter loved it because we have geese - and knowing the personality of the creatures we care for daily makes reading about their personalities in the page infinitely more enjoyable.

    14. I love the surly looking geese on the front and after I read the story, my love set fast! Zita is a wonderful little goose who is creating her own beat and then marching to it! The farm animals are all eager to keep up the wild rhythm!

    15. Even though I enjoyed the underlying message behind the book (marching to the beat of your own drummer and not conforming to what society tells you to do), I found the story itself to be overlong and way too descriptive and wordy in the beginning.

    16. This book lost a star because I think it begs to be read a loud, but didn't see how it could be done with out multiple people. A young goose is sent back to the barnyard because she can't march in step. However, her unusual gait attracts her own parade and she becomes the new leader.

    17. Each morning Igor leads the ducks to the pond all in step. However, little Zita can not stay in step. What will she do to become a good goose?

    18. The goose-stepping reference will likely go over the heads of the intended audience but children will appreciate this light, appealing tale of non-conformity and individuality.
