When Samuel and his father find an injured Canada goose and her loyal mate near their farm, they know they must help the birds. The geese quickly become part of the barnyard routine, and Samuel grows to love them both. By the time the injured female ...
and her mate finally fly south to join their flock, Samuel feels proud and also terribly sad. The winter seems long and lonely, but with the spring thaw comes a wonderful surprise for Samuel--and for readers, too.
Nan Parson Rossiter's golden, sun-drenched paintings of the geese and the Vermont farm that becomes their temporary home convey all the warmth and love evident in the story. With plenty of nonfiction details to fascinate young naturalists, this book is not only beautiful and moving but also informative. As in Rossiter's first book, Rugby & Rosie, The Way Home follows the theme of loving and letting go--never easy, but often rewarding in unexpected ways.
Rugby & Rosie was an American Bookseller Pick of the Lists and was praised by Kirkus Reviews as "a resonant debut."
