Gemma and Gus by Olivier Dunrea - ESSENTIAL

Dunrea, Olivier  Gemma and Gus  Hougton Mifflin Harcourt, 2015.  $9.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.   

Gemma is the older sister and Gus is the little brother.  Gemma leads out on their exploring expeditions and Gus follows her every move.  When Gemma yells at Gus to stop following her, Gus decides to explore on his own, but Gemma starts to follow Gus.  It is decided that they are both explorers, together.   

Adorable…again.  Dunrea has the simplest and cutest stories and this one is great.  The pictures and text are simple and strait forward.  The portrayal of brother and sister is easy to relate to and the message that they can both be the leader and both explore together is positive.  A must have for little readers.   

PREK-ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
