Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-K-Two books that are sure to become favorites because they tap into quintessential preschool experiences. In the first book, Gossie's red boots are missing. When they are found on the feet of Gertie, a smaller gosling, Gossie ends up sharing them. In the second story, Gertie is back, this time with blue boots of her own. She follows Gossie and does everything Gossie says, for a while. When she begins to do her own thing, her friend gets upset. By the end, the tables turn and Gertie leads Gossie to the food bowl, which they share, struggles forgotten. Dunrea's texts use easy words and simple, repetitive sentences, with a little bit of rhyming when it fits: "She wears them when she rides. She wears them when she hides" (Gossie). The ink-and-watercolor illustrations add little details that will reward observant children, such as a small insect in the background. Gossie's rural world is reassuringly child-sized, clear, and contained, as indicated by simple lines, primary colors, and focused illustrations on a white background. Because of the books' small size they will be better for one-on-one sharing than for group storytime. Young children will ask to hear these stories again and again, and they're just right for little hands.-Laurie von Mehren, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Parma, OH Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
From the Publisher
Gossie and Gertie’s boots are made for walking; the books they so delightfully traverse are made for treasuring.
Horn Book, Starred

"Adding ample wry humor to both his spare ink-and-watercolor pictures and minimalist text, Dunrea imbues both goslings with distinctive, endearing personalities and chronicles experiences every preschooler can recognize." Publishers Weekly, Starred

"The potent combination of toddler-appealing story lines and the charismatic charm of the illustrations assure that these smartly clad geese will be marching straight into the hearts of readers." Kirkus Reviews

Two books that are sure to become favorites…Young children will ask to hear these stories again and again, and they're just right for little hands.
School Library Journal

“Preschoolers are bound to ask for an encore reading, and they’ll probably ask for new boots, too.” The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

    A sweet little book.

    I'm a grandma of a 10 month old boy. My mother read to me, I read to my kids and now I am reading to my grandchild. I love to inspire the love of books in my kids and grandkids and this book is a delightful book to read to my grandson. The illustrations are delightful, so full of color. My grandson sits very well and becomes engaged with the pictures when I read this book, He is not at the age of being able to choose a book for me to read to him, however; he does quiet down when I read this book. I highly recomend this book

    Love the book!

    Love all the Gossie books. This one is great for talking about sharing. My kids love the book. But, I was disappointed with the size. I was expecting a library sized book, and it is the size of a small board book. Not what I wanted for the money!

    Cute and Fun

    The story is cute and fun. It is entertaining for preschool aged children. Pictures are colorful and children will want to read it again and again.

    Good friends from Dunrea

    The relationship between Gossie and Gertie is appealing to small people. The illustrations add subtle cues. Little ones can tell the story from the illustrations.

    The Best Series for Infants and Toddlers

    My son has always loved these books! He was interested in them when he was an infant and now as a toddler. He says words he may not have learned in other books...like snail, mole, bee and of course the characters names. It also helped with animal sounds and opposites. We hope to see new characters and books come out in this series!

    Excellent book for young child 6 months to 3 years old. Purchased for my grandson.

    I bought this book for my grandson to take home for entertainment on a long airplane trip. It soon became his favorite story book. He now has all the Gossie books. He knows all the little characters and just loves to carry around the books in his little bag. Looking for a stuffed Gossie!
