Laura Vaccaro Seeger's highly praised concept books have introduced children to colors, opposites, emotions, and the alphabet. Now she guides children on the first steps to reading with three sweet, funny stories about a stuffed bear and a frisky dachshund who happen to be best friends. Simple, engaging texts and bright, colorful pictures make this a perfect book for emergent readers to read by themselves or to share with friends.

Praise for Dog and Bear: Two Friends, Three Stories

“Told with simplicity and charm, this story is appropriate for sharing aloud or for newly confident readers.”School Library Journal

“In three brief stories the reader quickly becomes attached to Dog and Bear, and feels their connection . . . . As in all successful friendship stories, the balance keeps shifting between the two, with Dog and Bear taking turns being the friend-in-need and the friend indeed; and each story comes to a small, satisfying finish.” —Starred, Horn Book

She loves painting, surfing, tennis, playing the piano, and spending time with her family. She takes long walks at the beach every day and paints in her studio every night.
