Read full description of the books:
Dog and Bear: Two's Company by Laura Vaccaro Seeger has three easy to read tales of a dachshund and a teddy bear who are friends.
Seeger's illustrations are simple but effective for these three stories. I enjoyed particular book titles Dog had: Big Book of Dog Names, Fetch and Other Fun Games, and A Dog's Guide to Finding Bones. My favorite images are angry, books, can't wait, anything, and dreams.
Three short stories are told: Ice Cream, Happy Birthday Bear, and Sweet Dreams. I liked Two's Company less than [Dog and Bear: Two Friends, Three Stories] because there is less of the sweetness of that first book. I expect some prickliness when reading George and Martha, or Frog and Toad books, but I found it unsatisfying in this book. I think the sickness routine has been done funnier before, as has the botched birthday present scenario. Dog seems to be taking advantage of his friend just a bit.
I liked the Ice Cream story the best, even though I'm torn whether this is a tale of bribery or the power of ice cream (probably the latter). I wonder why Dog was so angry at Bear. I was also bothered by Dog not being truthful about eating the cake.
To be fair, Seeger is working with a controlled vocabulary and the stories do provide needed practice for beginning readers. I'm just not as happy with some of the messages here. 3 stars.
For ages 4 to 7, friendship, animals, dogs, birthdays, beginning readers, series, and fans of Dog and Bear and Laura Vaccaro Seeger.
