What did you like about the book? Gossie and her friends, Gertie, Ollie, Gideon, Peedie, BooBoo, Jasper and Joop star in these nine stories complete in one volume. Gossie is a little gosling who lives on a farm and wears bright red boots – all the time. One day she cannot find her boots after looking everywhere for them – and then she spies them on someone else’s feet: Gertie, another little gosling. Now Gossie shares her boots sometimes. Every story is cute and charming with the incredible artwork of Olivier Dunrea. A gem.
Anything you didn’t like about it? Not a thing.
To whom would you recommend this book? Give to beginning readers who like very simple stories.
Who should buy this book? Public libraries and kindergarten-2nd grade libraries.
Where would you shelve it? Shelve in your beginning reader section.
Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Well, maybe not the top, but cute and fun especially if you like Gossie and her friends.
