Summary

"With diminuitive heroes who assert a budding independence, these tales demonstrate once again how well their creator knows his audience." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review


Gideon likes to splash with the ducklings, hop with the frogs, play chase-the-piglets, and scamper all over the farmyard. But one thing busy Gideon does not want to do is take his nap, no matter how many times his mother asks . . . until he gets tired, of course. This Level 1 Green Light Reader is perfect for new readers, and features a bonus audio book download so kids can listen and read along. Look for the rest of the Gossie&Friends early reader editions!
