Living Paintings

Silly Goose and Daft Duck Try to Catch a Rainbow

Written by Sally Grindley
Illustrated by Adrian Reynolds

Suitable for: 0-5 years

Available braille grades: Grade 1, Grade 2

Silly Goose is bored with her dull, brown nest and wants to brighten it up. She sets off to look for colourful decorations with her best friend, Daft Duck. They come across all sorts of interesting things but none of them seem quite right.

Listen to an audio clip

You will discover Daft Duck's round balloon, but unfortunately it's floating away! It is a very brightly coloured balloon in orange, pink and blue and it has a black string hanging down below it. Go down to the bottom of the string, move your fingers left and you come to Daft Duck. Feel all over him. He is standing straight on to us but has his head turned towards the balloon. Start at the top of his head. Feel down to the left and find a little tuft of feathers sticking up.
