Ollie's Valentine This is my least favorite of the Gossie and Friends books. It's very short and there's no real story to it. The illustrations are cute, but it's a bit trite.
Love the series, but this was my least favorite.

We love Gossie and friends books.
Alicia Evans
This was a very cute book that my fiancé and I picked up on a whim. Ollie tries his hardest to find someone to be his Valentine, only to have a major surprise at the end!

For: fans of this series of books; readers wanting a cute Valentines read.

Possible red flags: feelings of loneliness and exclusion.

I didn't really like the ending but Ollie the duck goes through her day seeing all her friends and they each have a valentine from someone else but no one has one for her but you could be her valentine.
Ollie the Stomper wants a valentine. The other goslings -- Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie -- all have a valentine, but who will send him one?

The story is very cute and sweet but has very little plot. The final page has a reflective heart for the child to see "who" will be Ollie's Valentine.

Beautiful metallic Valentines provide parents the opportunity to practice color identification with their child. However, the favorite Valentine will definitely be the reflective mirror one at the end of the story.
I love Ollie!!! And this book!
