A large Canada goose was hissing menacingly at him, and three others were just a few feet away. I ran to rescue Andy and picked him up.

For example, “the dogs don’t hate [them], merely want to / taste the cider of [their] blood, watch [their] / fur drift lazily toward October clouds / where geese infuriate them” (11-14). This is a supporting text because it shows that children won’t always be treated fairly and if they are in such a rush to grow up, they could face many problems early in life because they can feel as though they do not belong

    Period Hypothesis. The Critical Period Hypothesis proposes that the human brain is only malleable, in terms of language, for a limited time. This can be compared to the critical period referred to in to the imprinting seen in some species, such as geese.
