A very cute story about adventure and friendship. It is told almost entirely by Goose's voice.

A fun neat book about friendship. The illustrations go with the text and tells a story all itself with the expressions the polar bear gives his friend the duck. We enjoyed this book. A beginning reader could build their self esteem with this book the text was fairly simple and wasn't long.

This book had a great message about friendship: the greatest treasures are your friends. It had simple text and fun illustrations that would be great for young students in kindergarten or first grade. The use of repetition in word choice is catchy and would help beginning readers practice.

I felt like it was someone trying to write like Mo Willems (but with better illustrations). It was frustrating for little ones to know which character is supposed to be speaking since the author opted not to use the talk-bubbles to make it clear.

Looking for books about treasures for our Summer Reading Program Adventure hour. We are going Metal Detecting and we need something to correlate with it...I think this one for work, but I would like something else. I like the picture and I like the story,

Duck and Polar Bear go treasure hunting, and find that they are each other's treasure.

Love love love this book!

Favorite Illustration:
Polar Bear is diving into the water & Duck's feet are poking through the ice at the top of the page.
I wanted to like this one more than I did--I loooooove polar bears, and I appreciate the idea of this one, and the illustrations are really pretty. It's sweet and cute and is a nice story about the value of friendship, but it just didn't really stand out to me, I guess.

What a great book! The facial expressions on Bear are just wonderful as Goose gets carried away, and the ending is cute. Not quite as good as Splendid Friend Indeed, but still enjoyable!

Simple story about play and friendship made even more enjoyable by Bloom's unique illustrations.

This whole series is an adorable friendship story. I just wish it was easier to tell who's speaking, the two aren't differentiated and there's no narration.

For beginning readers. Repetitive, dull text and boring illustrations. It gets starred reviews from Kirkus and SLJ though...
Very little print, but a good chance to dive, dig, and shout "Yo ho ho!" Expressive, humorous illustrations.

This may be one of my favorites of the series.
