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.
