In a roundup of bear books for children, the San Francisco Chronicle gives a thumbs-up to yet another new Dachshund book for kids:
A deferential stuffed bear again models the meaning of friendship in Dog and Bear: Two’s Company by Laura Vaccaro Seeger (Roaring Brook; 27 pages; $12.95; ages 3-7). In this welcome sequel to last year’s award-winning “Dog and Bear: Two Friends. Three Stories,” he indulges his friend, a dachshund who is dramatic, undisciplined and a bit demanding, too.
Crisp white pages contain simple drawings outlined in black and filled with cheery color. The simple art teams with simple text to recount fresh but recognizable mini-dramas. In three amusing chapters, Dog threatens to run away, eats Bear’s birthday cake solo and requires full service when under the weather.
