Hello all of you enthusiastic readers!

You had asked me what a “goose” was and how goose was used in the poem “Watch Your Mouth Kid.”

You may remember the Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs in Jack and the Beanstalk and originated from Aesop’s Fables? Or you might have seen the goose in the cartoon video Shrek? Here is a video by ANON KIDS Animations you might enjoy that features a goose: http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWSxikeQKpY

Would you like to hear geese squawking? Here ya go:


In the poem “Watch Your Mouth Kid” why was the little boy’s mouth squawking like a goose? Because he kept talking when her parents tried to explain that he needed to be quiet and listen to what they had to say and teach him? Did he finally be quiet? No, he talked while they talked and no one could hear each other. Has that ever happened to you? A time when you needed to listen and learn but just kept talking, talking, talking….like a goose squawking squawking, squawking?
