Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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

"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, 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

Gossie and Gertie’s boots are made for walking; the books they so delightfully traverse are made for treasuring.
Horn Book, Starred

“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

Children's Literature - Ramirose I. Attebury
Gossie is a small, adorable yellow gosling with a passion for bright red boots. She has a pair that she wears every single day. Eating, sleeping, hiding, and riding pigs are all so much more fun when wearing red boots! Unfortunately, one morning Gossie cannot find her bright red boots. Even after looking everywhere, the heartbroken little gal is still missing her boots. Then, suddenly, she spies them—on someone else's feet! Gossie's friend Gertie pulls them off of her own feet and gives them back to Gossie along with an exclamation of how wonderful the boots are. The final page of the book shows Gossie and Gertie sharing the boots—one boot on each of them. This sturdy little bilingual board book will appeal to English and Spanish-speaking preschool age children. Simple and colorful line drawings depict Gossie and Gertie's activities in a lighthearted yet realistic manner. Considering the reasonable price and the quality entertainment, this book would make a good selection for both preschools and public libraries. Reviewer: Ramirose I. Attebury
