“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!
