Here in one adorable package are three delightfully told stories that tackle common preschool anxieties: separation anxiety, the need for security blankets, and fear of the dark. In "Georgie Goat's Mommy Goes," Georgie learns that things that go do come back--including mommies. In "Georgie Goat's Best Friend, Coat," Georgie insists on keeping her favorite red coat with her all summer. When fall comes, the coat is now too small but her clever mom recycles it into something new. And in "Good Night, Georgie Goat," Georgie overcomes her fear of the dark when she has to reassure Grandpa Goat about the strange noises they hear in the night. Each story is written in a lighthearted, insightful, and believable way that makes this wee trilogy a perfect springboard for parent-child discussions. With bright, accessible artwork, quirky humor, and kid-pleasing sensibility, Brave Georgie Goat will strike a familiar chord with preschoolers and parents everywhere.
