A Sonderbooks’ Stand-out of 2003: #9, New Picture Books
Here’s a simple little picture book perfect for reading to very young children who have just learned to sit still long enough to hear a story. Gossie and Gertie are two little ducks who wear brightly colored boots and are best friends. Gossie’s a little bigger and thinks Gertie should follow her everywhere. Sometimes Gertie does follow, and sometimes she doesn’t.
Each page has one sentence along with a bright and simple drawing. I hope that I get a chance to share it with a two-year-old some time soon. This book doesn’t make you laugh out loud, but it does give you a satisfied smile.
