    The Joys of Friendship!

    I picked this book out for my son and my daughter, and they absolutely love it! I have to admit, I love this book just as much as they do. This picture book is a bonus because it contains the wonderful short stories about the friendship of Dog and Bear including "Bear in the chair," "Play with me, play with me," and "Dog changes his name." The book appears to be so simple, yet the three stories it contains about the ups and downs of friendship are delightfully amusing and warmhearted. The playful cartoon-style watercolor illustrations complement the text perfectly, for they encourage the reader to "be more actively engaged" since part of the meaning of the story is left to the reader to figure out, such as when Bear leaves his scarf on the chair that is to high for either dog or bear to reach. (Temple, Martinez, & Yokota, 2011, p. 82) In this situation it's easy for the reader to infer that it's easier for Dog and Bear to just play inside rather than go through the trouble of getting the scarf. With these types of illustration-text relationships throughout this little book, it's no wonder that children love its charming appeal!
