Baby Goz and Count on Goz Reviews by author Val Tyler

Baby Goz *****
This is a delightful lift-the-flap book for adults to read with pre- and early readers. The illustrations are bright and lively. The questions posed by Goz lead the child to guess what is behind the flap and there is enough repetition to allow the child to predict as well as start recognising specific words. All the animals come together at the end to round off the story perfectly. It’s nice to see a book of this sort printed on good quality paper that is not easily torn by enthusiastic fingers. If you like Baby Goz, you may well want to check out Count on Goz.

Count on Goz *****
Count on Goz encourages young children to count (as well as read) and is the perfect accompaniment book to Baby Goz. The flap is lifted to reveal an increasing number of animaIs that are making the appropriate sounds, giving the child a chance to count upwards to five (and then to ten). Animals from the previous page are in the background of each subsequent page, giving plenty for the child to talk about. Repetition of the same question gives the young reader the opportunity to predict as well as recognise certain words. Once again, this book is printed on quality paper that helps protect it from little fingers.

Count on Goz
Steve Weatherill
Steve Weatherill Books
Goz the baby goose has just taken his early morning swim but now he’s managed to lose the other geese. In his search he encounters in turn a cow and her calf, a sheep and 2 lambs, a mother cat and her 3 kittens and a dog with 4 lively puppies. To each he says, “Hello. Are the geese here?” but is greeted with “No, only me and my …” followed by a “Moo!”, “Baa, baa!” and so on …

until finally beside the big pond we spy …
Guess what is tucked in the nest beneath that large wing.
In addition to the baby animals revealed by opening the flap on each spread, the final page has 6 swallows, 7 sheep, 8 eggs, 9 newts and 10 tadpoles for those who want to continue their counting.
First published over 25 years ago, Goz has certainly stood the test of time. In addition to being a first counting book, this re-issue is, with its brief, predictable text, just right for beginning readers and far better than the rubbishy reading schemes offered to children starting to read in schools nowadays.
Equally it’s perfect to share with a small group of listeners in a nursery setting or an adult or older child to read to a younger sibling.

The new Baby Goz and Count on Goz are both now available.
