Flightless Goose is written by Eric D. Goodman and illustrated by Nataliya A. Goodman.
In the book, the flightless goose is playing too close to the road and is in a terrible automotive accident. Rendered unable to fly, he must learn to tolerate teasing and the challenges of being different. He is even left behind as the geese fly south for the winter. In the end, the flightless goose develops a talent no other goose has, and that helps him save the day.
Flightless Goose teaches important lessons to children about automotive safety, being watchful of play areas, how to deal with accidents and disabilities when they happen, how to focus on positive strengths, and how to treat others with dignity and respect, despite how different they may be.
The book helps children in more ways than the lessons it teaches. For every book purchased, one dollar will be donated to The Pajama Program to help provide warm pajamas and nurturing books to underprivileged children.
