Petunia by Roger Duvoisin is the classic story of a goose who finds a book and immediately thinks she knows everything...even though she hasn't read it. I can't believe this book is 60 years old this year....it is such a timeless story. This was always a great read aloud because the kids would get really get into the story. There are a lot of discussion points too. The best books transcend time....this is certainly one of them. A must have for your child's bookshelf.

Flashback Tuesday: Petunia by Roger Duvoisin
While on my walk today I was thinking of what I would write about on my blog. I look forward to Flashback Tuesdays because I get to reach back into the past to find a book. It had just started to rain and I was sort of following the street sweeper truck. I didn't feel like following the all the way so I cut down a street I don't usually walk on. It was as I was turning the corner that I noticed a really lovely house that I hadn't noticed before. On the front porch was a statue of a goose with a wreath of flowers around it's neck. At that moment Petunia popped into my head.
