A very talkative goose and a polar bear become friends. They are a bit different, bear loves quiet, where he can read and write. The goose always interupts the bear.

Illustrations done in pastel. An annoying duck wants to do everything bear is doing, and bear does't like it. But in the end duck is very nice to bear and they are good friends and share a snack together.

This story just comes to show that everyone is in need of someone to be there for them. We have bear who seems to be doing fine without anyone by his side. He seems to be quite content just doing his own thing. However, here comes goose with his vibrant and persistent personality to try to start a conversation with bear. Bear is hesitant and tries to reluctantly to stay away and just as he is about to blow up, goose reads something to him. "I like you. Indeed I do. you are my splendid friend." Sometimes that's all it takes, someone to say these words to make everything else disappear and make someone truly happy. That was what bear had been missing all along.

This is a short and sweet book about a duck who really want to be the bear's friend. He annoys the bear and wants to be part of everything the bear is doing. In the end the bear realizes that the duck is just trying to be nice and then they both eat a snack together. I think its a great read-aloud book. ( )
