This is a book about two good friends.
Aren't they adorable?
Bear in his snug, minimalistic cave.
Bear thinks bunny is a small bear and bunny thinks bear is a large bunny.
Sometimes our illusions help our friendships along.
I love them being interested in each other.
Any book that features Monarch caterpillars and milkweed in a prominent way is pretty awesome!
But their idyllic world is rocked by a question...
"Should we have a pet?"
"If we had a pet, it would be smaller, and not as clever as we are. It would need us to take care of it."
The bear thought for a while.
Then he asked, "Could a pinecone be a pet?"
The question of caterpillars comes up, but is found wanting.
So they sleep on it.
These two are the friendliest friends!
Then they find a kittie--up in a tree. That says, "CROAK!"
But Bunny is pretty sure it is a kitten.
"What do kitties eat?"
Their wisdom is astounding.
And just like that, they have a pet to take care of!
