Teaching an Important Lesson

The Goose Who Could Not Fly uses an original story to teach an important lesson. The author and artist have both worked with people who have disabilities in the past, so they understand how to tastefully teach tolerance.

Without calling attention to the fact that some of the characters have disabilities — never even mentioning it in the text — the book teaches without preaching; shows without telling.

The Goose Who Could Not Fly shows that people (and geese) with disabilities are just like everyone else.
