This is Gossie.
Gossie is a gosling.
A small, yellow gosling who likes to wear bright red boots.
She wears them when she eats.
She wears them when she sleeps.
She wears them when she rides.
She wears them when she hides.
But what Gossie
loves is to wear her bright red boots when she goes for walks.
She walks backward.
She walks forward.
