"Bloom gets maximum effect with minimum words. . . . Fun to read aloud, the book will also lead to discussion about friendly (and annoying) behavior." — Booklist
★"The gentle humor will elicit giggles; Goose's silly statements and Bear's patient responses beg to be read aloud. An ideal book for storytimes about friendship and sharing." — School Library Journal, starred review
★ "A more perfect union between giggle-inducing but reassuring images and a text of very few words is hard to conjure." — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
