This is my new favorite illustrator. My good friend and title 1 specialist met this author on several occasions and has the books signed by her. It is a delightful story of friendship. My friend told me that the publisher thought the words "splendid" and "indeed" were not age appropriate but she stuck by her guns. This is a perfect way to add a new big people word to little people vocabulary, and such a complimentary word at that. Ask students to use the word at home to describe something they really like i.e. dinner, the weather, mom's new dress, etc... ( )

A bear tries to read, and write - with many interruptions by goose. But the two become friends, splendid friends.

Bear just wants to read and write and think. His friend, Goose only wants to talk. And talk. And talk.
Can they stay friends?

Great book for talking about different characters in young students/children. Some are active and some are passive, but they can still be "splendid friends."

This sweet modern fantasy is about a studious polar bear and a questioning goose who wants to know all about what the bear is doing and show him things. In this book the goose wants to sit with the bear and talk with the bear and read with the bear, and finally he tells the bear that he is his splendid friend and the bear agrees and they hug. ( )

Stunning illustrations capture the exasperation of Bear, whose solitary reading and writing are continually interrupted by persistent Goose. In the end, Bear is won over and to his own surprise, declares Goose a Splendid Friend, Indeed! A very funny story with a warm message about not judging others.
