Right from the first two books about Gossie, my grandson and I were taken by Olivier Dunrea's books. They are colorful and uncluttered with simple honest lessons for little ones about sharing with friends and how no one is perfect. Peedie with his little red hat is no exception. I was able to read it to my grandson through our web cams and the pictures showed up beautifully.
Peedie is an adventurous gosling who misplaces his lucky red baseball cap and goes searching for it. The illustrations are just absolutely adorable. My 20-month old son adores this book. Very charming! Makes me want to take a look at related books by the author.
Peedie, a young gosling, forgets a lot of things. But he always remembers to wear his red cap - until one day he leaves it in a secret place. It's a place so secret even Peedie can't remember where he left it. It will tickle your child's funny bone to see where Peedie left his cap. This would make a great flannel board story. You could also play a hide and seek game where you hide a red cap in the room (or classroom), or let each child hide it, and the others have to find Peedie's red cap for him. Primarily for preschool through kindergarten age children or early readers to read to themselves. There are about one or two sentences per page.
It is short and direct and endearing all at the same time. This is one of my 20 month old son's favorite books to have read to him. I am glad it is short - since he loves to have it read to him many times a day. I don't know about you, but that great classic Green Eggs and Ham gets pretty tiring the 3rd or 4th time through.
My son loves this one, along with another book by the same artist, "Ollie". For some reason, my son almost breaks into laugher when Mama goose scolds Peedie for forgetting to turn the egg. Always puts a smile on his face, and he likes me to read it to him often.
excited when books arrived in good time. all the books i ordered arrived together. the book arrived in the condition as was stated in description and the price of the book was reasonable. I am very happy with my purchase of this book. Very fun book for kids and very excited to have it in our collection of childrens books. Very prompt shipping and product arrived in excellent time and condition. very very happy with my purchase and will definitely buy more of these kinds of books.
My daughter, age 20 months, really enjoyed this series from the library, so I just bought a bunch of this book and some others in the series to give as birthday gifts at 2nd birthday parties. They are about a little goose who loses something but finds something unexpected, a friend. P.s. My kid wanted to tear and crinkle the pages of the hard cover book from the library so I bought the board books for her and her friends which are much more durable.
Peedie is a small, yellow gosling who sometimes forgets things. Olivier Dunrea's illustrations are simple yet colorful - absolutely delightful and appealing to all, yes even adults. Peedie wears a red baseball cap wherever he goes until one day he puts it in a secret place. Of course he forgets where he put it and so a search commences? Where does he find it? On top of an egg :)
One of our preschoolers favorite in our home library.
This is the cutest book. The story is short and very simple. Each page has only one or two short sentences which will keep a small child from becoming too restless. If I read this book to my daughter I can usually count on reading it two or three times because whenever the story is over she says "more, more". It is such a cute story I don't mind reading it a few times. I am planning on buying a couple other books by the same author.
My 6 month old daughter loves Peedie. She gets so excited when she sees the simple white cover with yellow Peedie and his special red hat. The pages are nice and simple and the story is also nice and short which should fare well for the upcoming toddler attention span! I am looking forward to picking up the rest of the Gossie and Friends books for her enjoyment.
Both of my grandsons have been captivated by these little books, both in book form and on my kindle. The illustrations are clear, colorful, and uncomplicated, and the boys learn to recognize the little goslings and think of them as friends.
