This is a short children’s story suitable for bedtime or daytime reading for children aged between 3-8 years old. This short, sweat and entertaining story with beautiful illustrations helps to reinforce the idea that children’s parents and guardians often know what is best for them and that they do things to protect them out of love and their wellbeing. Gertie is a prime example of a goose who thinks she knows better but soon realises the consequences of being stubborn. However, by the time she realises it is too late and she has to use her initiative and think for herself. The book helps promote the idea of the wisdom of elders, whilst growing independence and confidence in one’s own abilities, in a bedtime story that everyone can enjoy.
The printed version also includes a short quiz at the end plus two colour in images for your child to enjoy (not available in the ebook). The printed version is only available through Amazon – click the ‘add to cart’ button on the print version to be redirected to correct Amazon page.
I think the illustrations are marvellous.
