PreS-Gr 2—When a family of ducks welcomes a bear into their home, they don't consider the size of his body. "Things were always a little crowded," especially at bedtime (he sleeps on the roof) and mealtimes (his feet hang out the front window when he eats). But both the large and the small animals in this story have big hearts, so they persevere through a few hardships and sacrifice a few comforts until they find a solution that suits one and all. Gavin's plump characters are an endearing bunch. The watercolor and pencil scenes include familiar furnishings and warm colors that will make readers feel right at home. The story also lends itself to discussions about family diversity.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada
