About the Book

Overview

It’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.

Reviews

* "Fans of Goose and Bear from A Splendid Friend, Indeed (2005) and Treasure (2007, both Boyds Mills) will enjoy having them back." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Artfully uses body language rather than text (which runs to fewer than 100 words) to crank up the emotional intensity. . . . Another splendid outing, indeed." --Kirkus Reviews

"Little listeners will identify with Bear's reaction to Fox's arrival and unfair exclusion and to cheer on Goose's defense of his big furry friend." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
