"An ideal book for storytimes about friendship and sharing." - School Library Journal "A more perfect union between giggle-inducing but reassuring images and a text of very few words is hard to conjure." - Kirkus Reviews "Bloom's splendid illustrations, done in textured pastels against a vivid blue background, lend the book a decidedly cozy air. Her use of simple shapes to convey the characters of Bear and Goose echo the simplicity of the predictable text. Bear's shape is huge and solid; sometimes Bear's bulk hangs over the edges of the page. In contrast, Goose makes up for his small size with his twirling, hyperactive movements across the pages. A Splendid Friend, Indeed provides emergent readers with many nuanced layers to enjoy and discuss." - Language Arts"
