Anyone who has ever been lost will understand how Gordon feels on the first day at his new school. He knows he is supposed to go to music class, but he can't remember how to get there. However, Gordon's a resourceful little guy who asks for directions and then follows them! An easily recognizable problem together with a simple solution makes this an excellent book for introducing the concepts of problem/solution and direction.
