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 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.
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,
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.
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.

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!
bear and duck search for treasure but don't think they find any until bear reminds duck that spending time with a friend is the best treasure of all.
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.

Recommends it for: toddlers pirate treasure
Shelves: picturebooks
Very simple book to share with toddlers in case of pirate/treasure theme.
enjoyed this one just as much as "A splendid friend, indeed".
yo, ho, ho ho! Keep a look out for floating goose 'tocks on page 16!
Four stars just for the underwater dive.
