Children’s Book Wednesday: Fixer-Mixer and the Friends of Gooseville by Althea Southwick


Should Fixer-Mixer befriend a new goose who is different than the rest of his friends?
Or should he treat her like the rest of them and ignore his own feelings about the situation?

I received a copy of Fixer-Mixer and Friends of Gooseville at the St. George Book Festival on Saturday. Author Althea Southwick did a fabulous job writing a story that teaches values.

This story tells what happens when a new duck Quaky-Lacky moves to town. Quaky-Lacky is different than the other ducks and some of the ducks are mean to her. Fixer-Mixer has to decide if he will go along with the others or have the courage to do what is right.

I enjoy books like this one that teach an important lesson to children. Reminds me of a story you would find in The Book of Virtues. Filled with colorful, simple illustrations, this book will delight readers of all ages.
