Praise For A Splendid Friend, Indeed (Goose and Bear Stories)

"Bloom gets maximum effect with minimum words. . . . Fun to read aloud, the book will also lead to discussion about friendly (and annoying) behavior." —Booklist

* "The gentle humor will elicit giggles; Goose's silly statements and Bear's patient responses beg to be read aloud. An ideal book for storytimes about friendship and sharing." —School Library Journal, starred review

* "A more perfect union between giggle-inducing but reassuring images and a text of very few words is hard to conjure." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
