This paper critically evaluates the content and illustrations of "Goose's Story" by Cari Best and Holly Meade. It discusses the content of the story written by Best and how it successfully teaches children how to care for wild animals. The paper also analyzes the impact that the illustrations by Meade have on the child readers. It specifically shows how the illustrations infuse many different artistic mediums that build on Best's written word.

From the Paper:

"In conclusion, a critical analysis of Goose's Story by Cari Best and Holly Meade provides a literary insight into how children should learn about injured wildlife. In many cases, the story provides detailed dialogues that can help both parents and their children understand the proper way to treat animals that are injured in the wild. However, the book clearly reads more like an instruction or teaching manual that the publishers wanted to see in too narrow a market specific category, making the characters typical and one-dimensional. In this manner, the book provides valid content, but does not rise to the artistic standards that art and literature should provide for children on a more profound level."
