Olivier Dunrea. Houghton Mifflin, $9.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-618-43661-3

Gideon, “a small, ruddy gosling who likes to play,” joins Gossie and the other goslings on Dunrea’s farm. Always on the move, Gideon chases a piglet, plays “tag-the-mole,” leaps over a frog, and listens to bees buzzing in their hive—always with his octopus toy in tow. No naps for Gideon, no matter what mother goose says, but a day of barnyard shenanigans has a way of tiring out a gosling. Dunrea’s charming world of tiny adventures should continue to enchant toddlers. Available simultaneously: Gideon & Otto. Up to age 3. (Feb.)
