So this book is very well written and our toddler picks it for story time all the time.
The only problem we encounter now is that our daughter claims she doesn't want to nap.
She clearly needs to understand a bit more what the book is really about. The duckling says he doesn't want to nap but then at the end falls asleep on a haystack.

We bought this book for our son to give to our newest baby (Gideon). The book is very cute and we love it and "big brother" loves sitting and "reading" it to his little brother. We bought it not knowing much but knew we wouldn't find "Gideon" written on a lot of things for our son. Would recommend this to anyone.

Gideon is another great book we had to add to our Gossie collection, all the characters in the books are cute and each has their own personality. The words are simple and the stories are easy to understand for toddlers.
My daughter is Gossie obsessed!

My daughter loves this series! She can't get enough of these books! We've been taking them out of the library for a while so we just decided to finally order them.

Gideon is a tiny little gosling who wants to play all day. So when his mother calls for him to come take a nap, he refuses to come. Gideon runs off to play some more. Gideon plays with all of the animals in the barn yard, but soon his mother finds him fast asleep in the hay. He could not stay awake for another moment.

The bright, colorful illustrations are centered on every page and help tell the story. The font is large so the beginning readers can see the words. The vocabulary fits well with the level one grade. The book also comes with a downloadable audio version and a web address for additional games and activities. Parents and teachers will like the simple format. Children will be able to relate to Gideon and the amusing ending. This book would work well in a home school or classroom setting for early readers.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.

My daughters favorite books are the Gossie & Friends series. Gideon does not disappoint! It is an adorable book about a sweet little gosling that doesn't want to take a nap, even though his mother keeps telling him it's time for a nap. My 2 year old knows the phrase Gideon repeats to his mom and it is so cute: "No nap! I'm playing!"
Olivier Dunrea knew what he was doing when he wrote this series. The illustrations in every book are perfect for young eyes and the board book format is durable and great for little hands. We highly recommend!

This book is wonderful! As are the rest of the books in this series. I read them to my grandson who is 18 months old and the story and pictures hold his interest so much that he is now saying a word or two along with me. A great series of books to help little ones begin to read! eg. Gossie, BooBoo, Gossie and Gertie etc. All excellent books!!!!!!!!!
