New Frontier, 2020. ISBN: 9781925594942. 18pp. board book.
(Age: 0-3) Gregory Goose is on the loose up the mountain, is a sweet board book by Hilary Robinson and Mandy Stanley. It is one of 4 Gregory Goose is on the loose books, all featuring Gregory in a variety of locations (on the moon, in the jungle and at the fair).
In this story he is situated on a snowy mountain and is having lots of fun. Each page has a short sentence about where he might be, encouraging the young reader to search through the pages and find this cute little goose! There are also other animal friends to find on each page including a bear, rabbits and a beaver.
The story is an easy little rhyme, that is short and could be used to introduce the concept of a question (as each page is a question).
I really loved the vibrant illustrations and facial expressions of all the characters both human, animal and snowman! This book would be excellent for young children from a year old, up until approximately 3 years old - or even for a beginner reader sibling to read and share.
A lovely sturdy book that will hold up to many years of rough reading and enjoyment!
