Read full description of the books:
Only one of the best books ever.... which is not really what I expected. My youngest son, now 3, loves this book more than all of his other books combined - and believe me, that's saying something! Nora, Bear's... uh... owner? companion? mother? little girl?... needs to go to the store, but bear (an animated stuff animal) has a cold and has to stay home, so Mrs. Duck (a real duck) comes to babysit. Bear is uncooperative at first, but eventually warms up to Mrs. Duck. The drawing are sweet, with an aside or two to the adult audience in the way of a "look" from Mrs. Duck. Nora returns home and all is well. It's a very simple story about an everyday event that really seems to hit home with little ones. Excellent!
