Amazon.com Review

It's impossible to resist the charms of picture book pals Dog and Bear. Where Dog (a frisky daschund) is brave and boisterous, colorful stuffed animal Bear is shy, and--much like the beloved curmudgeons Frog and Toad have for generations--their playful misadventures illustrate the joys of having a best friend at your side. Young readers will delight in these clever little vignettes and marvel as they watch Dog and Bear animate each page with big, bold color and expression. Take a look at a sample of pages from Dog and Bear below--or listen to author Laura Vaccaro Seeger read from the book at the top of this page--and discover a new reading treasure that would inspire any child to plead (as Dog does to Bear), "Read to me!"

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 2—In this endearing picture book, a tail-wagging dachshund and a multicolored stuffed bear star in three tales about friendship. In the first, Dog wants to go outside, but Bear is perched atop a tall chair and can't get down. It takes encouragement and ingenuity, but the pooch eventually helps his pal descend; unfortunately, Bear's scarf has been left behind. Next, Dog wants to play and brings out numerous toys, but Bear is busy reading. At last, he closes his book and asks, "What shall we do?," and the pup appears with a stack of volumes ("Read to me!"). Finally, Dog decides to change his name. Bear points out that none of the traditional canine choices is suitable, imagining what his friend would be like if he were called Spot (speckled with colorful dots), Fluffy (pink, with a cotton-candy body), or Prince (dressed in royal regalia). They reach a consensus when Bear suggests "My Best Friend Dog" (Dog for short). The characters and a few highlighted objects are drawn with thick black lines, colored with bright variegated hues, and set against white backdrops. The eye-catching artwork shines with humor and warmth. Told with simplicity and charm, this story is appropriate for sharing aloud or for newly confident readers.—Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal

Bear doesn't want to be disturbed while Dog brings an array of toys to entice Bear away from his book.

I am always on the look-out for children's books that make ME laugh - if by some chance THIS is the book that my child will want me to read 5 million times a day, then I won't have the urge to throw it out of the window at an opportune moment!
It is a loving, sweet and subtle funny book, which I would definitely recommend.

The amazing thing about this book is that it manages to capture the essence of true friendship very quickly and with so few words. With a child's sensibilities in mind, Seeger creates an instant classic. Buy this book along with Frog and Toad and George and Martha.

This book is very simple but has really cute illustrations. I really like how the book captures true friendship and that can be a great lesson for children. Dog and Bear is a great book for parents and teachers of young children. There are lots of places throughout the book to make funny sounds and even make different voices for the characters and the children will enjoy that. I know i will be adding this book to my classroom collection for the future.

The quality and style of the artist's work in this book was amazingly awesome. I think that the characters in Dog and Bear are really great and I wish that there were more Dog and Bear books. They remind me of feelings that I have sometimes and I've also got a best friend like dog so I understand how bear feels. I really like this book a lot.

This is a simple, cute book that deals with friendship between a Dog and Bear. Very easy for young readers to follow and understand. Although it is short and simple the author did a great job on the illustration. You could use this book either at home or in the classroom. I read it to my six and three year old more than once, they liked and enjoyed it. Definitely a book I would include in my classroom library.

Dog and Bear are a pair of unlikely friends. Dog is a Dachshund who loves to play, and Bear is a teddy bear who likes to sit and read. But, there is one thing that ties the two together...their friendship.

This is a very cute book. The illustration work is kind of primitive, but goes along quite nicely with the dream-like story. My little one really likes this book, and I am quite sure that your will as well!

The book is about a cute bear and a silly little dog who's stories will make you giggle no matter what age you are. The book is very simple when it comes to illustration but that does not take away from the stories it actually adds to the cute characteristics of the characters in the book. Children of all ages will enjoy these stories of the unlikely pair of friends.
