A Splendid Friend, Indeed

by

A Splendid Friend, Indeed Cover

 

Staff Pick

Sometimes we are drawn to be friends with folks who appear to be different from us. But are we really all that different? Suzanne Bloom's illustrations perfectly capture the personalities in this story. It will make you smile, and maybe even giggle out loud.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Itandrsquo;s playtime, and Bear and Goose are having fun. But when little Fox joins in, somebody gets left out and hurt feelings result. Who can fix the friendship? In this delicate yet simple story, Goose and Bear show Fox that including friends is more fun than excluding them.

Synopsis:

Bear and Goose are back. And they have a new friend--Fox. It's playtime and Bear and Goose are having fun. Then little Fox joins in and somebody gets left out. Somebody's feelings are hurt. Who will fix the friendship? As this gentle story shows, the solution lies in including friends, not excluding them. As in her previous Bear and Goose stories, Suzanne Bloom's latest book deals with a familiar aspect of friendship: being left out. This is the third book in Suzanne Bloom's endearing series about these characters and the first to feature Fox.

Synopsis:

An Athabaskan boy's crippled foot may be a bad omen, but it may also be a sign that he is destined to be the next medicine man. How he defies the evil spirits and becomes a hero forms the basis of this true story set in 19th century Alaska.

Synopsis:

Bear wants to read and write and think. Goose wants to talk and talk and talk. Can Bear and Goose be friends? Suzanne Bloom's picture book says volumes about friendship with a few select words and charming illustrations in this Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book .
