Olivier Dunrea
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.
