Gossie
by Olivier Dunrea

Meet Gossie, a small yellow gosling who loves to wear bright red boots--every day. One morning Gossie can't find her beloved boots. She looks everywhere for them: under the bed, over the wall, even in the barn. Preschoolers will enjoy helping Gossie find her red boots and delight in where Gossie finally finds them.

Meet Gossie, a small yellow gosling who loves to wear bright red boots--every day. One morning Gossie can't find her beloved boots. She looks everywhere for them: under the bed, over the wall, even in the barn. Preschoolers will enjoy helping Gossie find her red boots and delight in where Gossie finally finds them.

Many toddlers have a beloved object - a blanket, a teddy bear, a doll - and these youngsters will understand the importance of helping Gossie the gosling find her must-have red rain boots. The colorful drawings are simply set against a white background - and the text is short and easy for toddlers to follow. The story uses simple rhymes alongside humorous illustrations, such as Gossie going for a ride on the back of a pig.

Kids will undoubtedly relate to Gossie's love for her red boots and will gladly help her in her search for them. The drawings match the text so closely that many kids will be able to read the story on their own by the age of two or three.

Not only will children find Gossie a lovable and relatable character, but they'll also appreciate the story of losing and finding a beloved item. It's a story that will grow with your child and that parents can turn into a lesson in sharing as well. I read it to an almost three-year-old girl who had a case of the giggles at the thought of Gossie riding a pig but also recognized Gossie's kindness in sharing her bright red boots with a friend.
