Gossie ~ A book for toddlers

If you have a toddler or two year old, Gossie by Olivier Dunrea is a book they will love. It is a wonderful spring read! Gossie is a little goseling who loves her red boots so much she wears them everywhere. She wears them in the rain and in the snow, up and down hills….

…and even when she sleeps.

One day she can’t find her boots. I can relate. Gossie goes on an extensive search to find them. She checks with her friends and looks everywhere.

She was shocked when she discovered them on Gertie’s feet!

What girl wants to share her favorite shoes? Gertie and Gossie find a solution!

If your children read Gossie, they will learn about:

  • color
  • verbs
  • direction
  • vocabulary
  • prepositions
  • friendship
  • and sharing

What can you do with a pair of rain boots:

  • Play hide and seek
  • Jump into puddles
  • Jump over puddles, splash through them too
  • Puddle paint – walk through a puddle of paint and onto a piece of paper

Our furry friend loves red boots too!
