Gossie is a little gosling who wears read boots. She has many friends, and she lives on a farm. In this book we are going to join Gossie as she meets the farm animals, as she and her friends practice counting things, and much more.

On this page we are going to look at clothes and colors. Look at Gossie's friend Peedie. Here he is wearing his favorite red cap. Lift the flap and you will see Peedie wearing a very smart black hat. BooBoo, who is a blue gosling, is wearing fuzzy boots. Doesn't she look silly?

If you want to take a break from learning things, you can play the Gossie game. Using a coin and some buttons you can help Gossie and BooBook to find the pond.

In all, there are five busy pages in this delightful novelty title. Each page is packed with illustrations and flaps to lift. Little children are encouraged to explore Gossie's world, and to look for things in the artwork. Children will find Gossie and her little gosling friends quite irresistible.
