I had read this with my daughter when we got it from our local library. I loved it so much I bought it. It's a conversation between a bear (who is trying to sleep) and a duck (who is wide awake). There is no commentary, it's all conversation, so my daughter (6 years old) and me take it in turns to be each character - although we both love being the bear. My favourite bit is when the duck pops up in the window when the bear is trying to sleep - there are no words for this bit, and they aren't needed. It's a bit like when Scrat appears on Ice Age....I just start laughing
This book is hilarious! Benji Davis' illustrations are full of humour, that bear has me giggling every time. And Jory John's story is hilarious. A good story for encouraging conversations about empathy and others feelings, and will have children giggling. 5 stars!
A nice bedtime read and the annoying duck is very funny well my 4yr old like its and can relate to the story (he being the bear and his little brother the duck). Very nice supporting images and a regular read in our house.
Such a funny book! It’s a favourite in our house as well as the follow up, ‘I Love You Already’. Duck and Bear get quoted all the time around the house and are well loved characters. Full of humour and charm, hopefully there’ll be another one coming out soon.
My boys aged 3 and 5 adore this story! I was worried that it would be too American, and that my boys wouldn't understand some of the terms (English is not their first language), but they can't get enough of this book. In fact, they even re-enact conversations between duck and bear when they are playing. It's a really fun read, I enjoy giving duck and bear different accents and the illustrations are fantastic. A surprise hit in this household.
