Bear and Bunny by Daniel Pinkwater

The delightful singing bear and his tender bunny pal from Bear in Love are back for another tale of friendship and sharing.  Still confused thinking the other is just a different sized version of their own species, the bunny and bear wander, eat, sing, and share their individual adventures with each other.  The bunny suggests one day that they should get a pet.  After a nap, song and meandering about, the silly pair discover and misidentify a new animal to be their companion.  The pastel illustrations tug at your heartstrings while the chums’ lightheartedness will have everyone giggling.
