Booklist Review: "Ages 3-7. A storm is blowing, but shy Little Goosey doesn't want to shelter with mouse, squirrel, or rabbit. She just wants to hide somewhere with Big Gander Goose, "Just me and you." Kindly, understanding Big Gander Goose makes an excuse each time an animal offers to share its sanctuary, finally finding just the spot to wait out the rain with Little Goosey. But after the storm is over, the father and daughter discover they are not alone after all: they've actually been snuggled up with some furry friends. Although this has none of the sparkle of Guess How Much I Love You? (1995), it conveys the gentleness of a loving relationship of a different kind. Bates' illustrations are reminiscent of Beatrix Potter's, depicting woodland creatures in warm watercolor washes, with jaunty outlining adding definition and character.
