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. ( )

This is a great book for beginning readers. I would read this to my class or let someone read it to me. It also reminded me of sibling love, the younger ones can seem so annoying sometimes, asking you question after question after question to see what you're doing or see what you like, but that's because they look up to you and love you so much. And when you realize that, a great bond forms. ( )

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.

A Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book.
