Funny Because It's True

This book isn't incredibly new, but it is new to me and I loved it. Duck and Goose actually made me laugh out loud and it is written for preschool-first graders. However, the dialog in the book will sound so familiar to you, I guarantee. Here's an example of dialog between Duck and Goose when they discover a giant polka-dotted sphere, which they take to be a very large egg:

"I saw it first," says Duck

"I touched it first," says Goose

Ok, well that might not convince you, but the illustration of Goose sticking out his webbed foot out ever so carefully so he technically can be touching the sphere got me. The illustrations speak very loudly. I highly recommend.
