    When you want alone time but someone is always around, you don't know how to act or think when you get the alone time. So which is better, having more time alone or having someone around? COME HOME ALREADY! explores this questions using humor and vibrance. Written by Jory John, il...

    Poor Bear. He just cannot win; either Duck is all up in his business, and Bear cannot get any rest and relaxation. Or Bear strikes out on his lonesome to get his much needed rest and relaxation and everything falls apart. Poor Bear. ...

    "Come Home Already!" is a sweet, kinetic story about how opposites attract in the realm of friendship. In the plot, Bear shoves off for a one-week solo fishing trip--craving the prospect of solitude--but Duck isn't quite sure what he'll do without Bear for an entire week! I especially ...

    As much as Bear doesn't seem to like Duck they sure do make a pair. The expression in the pictures is fun and hilarious. The story is sweet and full of Tude. In spots it is a little wordy, but the story flows and the reader does not notice the small paragraphs. They have quippy little ...

    I adore finding another bear book to share and to love. It?s not a ?new? story, but Jory John has written one full of chuckles that shows no matter how we might like a bit of ?alone? time from a friend, it?s also good to have that friend arrive at just the best moment. Bea...

    If you have ready any of Jory John's prior books in this series, this one will not disappoint! Duck is excited to hang out with Bear, but Bear is on a fishing trip. A fishing trip?! Duck, saddened, tries to find ways to entertain himself for a week while Bear is gone, but he misses his...

    Bear just wants to be alone with his own thoughts and do a little fishing. But he can't put up the tent and it starts raining and getting dark and he's scared. When Bear left, Duck was frantic. What would he do without his friend Bear. So Duck takes off in search of Bear. Luckily Duck ...

    I received a copy of COME HOME ALREADY! at ALA Annual and, as a big fan of GOODNIGHT, ALREADY!, I had high expectations ? It's such a fun read, with familiar laugh-out-loud moments between unlikely friends Bear and Duck in a whole new story. Bear sets out on a solo camping retreat an...

    Probably my least favourite of the three so far - but that is NOT to say that this isn't a good book! It's just that the other Duck and Bear books are such fun! This one feels.... well, it's got more of a plot, but less substance, if that makes sense. It seems a bit dragged out, but I ...

    Friends need space in this story so Bear goes fishing without his friend. Things don't go well for Bear but Duck finds him and helps out. Then Duck decides he will always be with there for bear wherever he goes. And that's a problem?? Read this fun story and why Bear feels as he does. ...

    Another silly, amusing and entertaining book about Bear and Duck. I looked forward to, and enjoy being along for, the ride on their cute antics (in this case it was camping), so I did chuckle a few times! However, I do feel like Duck is getting awfully clingy. I mean, poor Bear had to ...

    Easily the most laugh out loud funny of the three of them. The illustration of duck popping out of the bushes, the smiley face carved into the tree stump, Oh I loved it and so did the school I read it to. ...

    So funny! We all have that one friend (or we ARE that friend) who is annoying and pesters and talks, but you love them anyway? The illustrations are great too. Detailed without being too much. I just loved this book. ...

    Duck wants to hang out with bear. But Bear's gone fishing for a whole week. What will Duck do while Bear is gone. How will he survive without his best pal? Come Home Already! is a laugh out loud story of two unlikely friends who can't live without each other. Great for storytime! ...

    A cute book about an annoying duck that goes to find his neighbor (bear) who has gone off on a camping trip. This would make a really cute read aloud! *Side note, what kind of bear doesn't know how to catch fish...and why does he use a banana for bait. The world may never know. ...

    Fantastic book to talk about needing independence and alone time - but not too much of it! ...

    so funny! ...

    Bear just wants to be alone with his own thoughts and do a little fishing. But he can't put up the tent and it starts raining and getting dark and he's scared. When Bear left, Duck was frantic. What would he do without his friend Bear. So Duck takes off in search of Bear. Luckily Duck ...

    I received a copy of COME HOME ALREADY! at ALA Annual and, as a big fan of GOODNIGHT, ALREADY!, I had high expectations ? It's such a fun read, with familiar laugh-out-loud moments between unlikely friends Bear and Duck in a whole new story. Bear sets out on a solo camping retreat an...

    Probably my least favourite of the three so far - but that is NOT to say that this isn't a good book! It's just that the other Duck and Bear books are such fun! This one feels.... well, it's got more of a plot, but less substance, if that makes sense. It seems a bit dragged out, but I ...

    Friends need space in this story so Bear goes fishing without his friend. Things don't go well for Bear but Duck finds him and helps out. Then Duck decides he will always be with there for bear wherever he goes. And that's a problem?? Read this fun story and why Bear feels as he does. ...

    Another silly, amusing and entertaining book about Bear and Duck. I looked forward to, and enjoy being along for, the ride on their cute antics (in this case it was camping), so I did chuckle a few times! However, I do feel like Duck is getting awfully clingy. I mean, poor Bear had to ...

    Easily the most laugh out loud funny of the three of them. The illustration of duck popping out of the bushes, the smiley face carved into the tree stump, Oh I loved it and so did the school I read it to. ...

    So funny! We all have that one friend (or we ARE that friend) who is annoying and pesters and talks, but you love them anyway? The illustrations are great too. Detailed without being too much. I just loved this book. ...

    Duck wants to hang out with bear. But Bear's gone fishing for a whole week. What will Duck do while Bear is gone. How will he survive without his best pal? Come Home Already! is a laugh out loud story of two unlikely friends who can't live without each other. Great for storytime! ...

    A cute book about an annoying duck that goes to find his neighbor (bear) who has gone off on a camping trip. This would make a really cute read aloud! *Side note, what kind of bear doesn't know how to catch fish...and why does he use a banana for bait. The world may never know. ...

    Fantastic book to talk about needing independence and alone time - but not too much of it! ...

    so funny! ...

    Such a sweet story of friends. ...

    When you want alone time but someone is always around, you don't know how to act or think when you get the alone time. So which is better, having more time alone or having someone around? COME HOME ALREADY! explores this questions using humor and vibrance. Written by Jory John, il...

    "Come Home Already!" is a sweet, kinetic story about how opposites attract in the realm of friendship. In the plot, Bear shoves off for a one-week solo fishing trip--craving the prospect of solitude--but Duck isn't quite sure what he'll do without Bear for an entire week! I especially ...

    As much as Bear doesn't seem to like Duck they sure do make a pair. The expression in the pictures is fun and hilarious. The story is sweet and full of Tude. In spots it is a little wordy, but the story flows and the reader does not notice the small paragraphs. They have quippy little ...

    When you want alone time but someone is always around, you don't know how to act or think when you get the alone time. So which is better, having more time alone or having someone around? COME HOME ALREADY! explores this questions using humor and vibrance. Written by Jory John, il...

    Poor Bear. He just cannot win; either Duck is all up in his business, and Bear cannot get any rest and relaxation. Or Bear strikes out on his lonesome to get his much needed rest and relaxation and everything falls apart. Poor Bear. ...

    "Come Home Already!" is a sweet, kinetic story about how opposites attract in the realm of friendship. In the plot, Bear shoves off for a one-week solo fishing trip--craving the prospect of solitude--but Duck isn't quite sure what he'll do without Bear for an entire week! I especially ...

    As much as Bear doesn't seem to like Duck they sure do make a pair. The expression in the pictures is fun and hilarious. The story is sweet and full of Tude. In spots it is a little wordy, but the story flows and the reader does not notice the small paragraphs. They have quippy little ...

    I adore finding another bear book to share and to love. It?s not a ?new? story, but Jory John has written one full of chuckles that shows no matter how we might like a bit of ?alone? time from a friend, it?s also good to have that friend arrive at just the best moment. Bea...

    If you have ready any of Jory John's prior books in this series, this one will not disappoint! Duck is excited to hang out with Bear, but Bear is on a fishing trip. A fishing trip?! Duck, saddened, tries to find ways to entertain himself for a week while Bear is gone, but he misses his...

    Bear just wants to be alone with his own thoughts and do a little fishing. But he can't put up the tent and it starts raining and getting dark and he's scared. When Bear left, Duck was frantic. What would he do without his friend Bear. So Duck takes off in search of Bear. Luckily Duck ...

    I received a copy of COME HOME ALREADY! at ALA Annual and, as a big fan of GOODNIGHT, ALREADY!, I had high expectations ? It's such a fun read, with familiar laugh-out-loud moments between unlikely friends Bear and Duck in a whole new story. Bear sets out on a solo camping retreat an...

    Friends need space in this story so Bear goes fishing without his friend. Things don't go well for Bear but Duck finds him and helps out. Then Duck decides he will always be with there for bear wherever he goes. And that's a problem?? Read this fun story and why Bear feels as he does. ...

    Another silly, amusing and entertaining book about Bear and Duck. I looked forward to, and enjoy being along for, the ride on their cute antics (in this case it was camping), so I did chuckle a few times! However, I do feel like Duck is getting awfully clingy. I mean, poor Bear had to ...

    Friends need space in this story so Bear goes fishing without his friend. Things don't go well for Bear but Duck finds him and helps out. Then Duck decides he will always be with there for bear wherever he goes. And that's a problem?? Read this fun story and why Bear feels as he does. ...

    Another silly, amusing and entertaining book about Bear and Duck. I looked forward to, and enjoy being along for, the ride on their cute antics (in this case it was camping), so I did chuckle a few times! However, I do feel like Duck is getting awfully clingy. I mean, poor Bear had to ...

    When you want alone time but someone is always around, you don't know how to act or think when you get the alone time. So which is better, having more time alone or having someone around? COME HOME ALREADY! explores this questions using humor and vibrance. Written by Jory John, il...

    Poor Bear. He just cannot win; either Duck is all up in his business, and Bear cannot get any rest and relaxation. Or Bear strikes out on his lonesome to get his much needed rest and relaxation and everything falls apart. Poor Bear. ...

    "Come Home Already!" is a sweet, kinetic story about how opposites attract in the realm of friendship. In the plot, Bear shoves off for a one-week solo fishing trip--craving the prospect of solitude--but Duck isn't quite sure what he'll do without Bear for an entire week! I especially ...

    As much as Bear doesn't seem to like Duck they sure do make a pair. The expression in the pictures is fun and hilarious. The story is sweet and full of Tude. In spots it is a little wordy, but the story flows and the reader does not notice the small paragraphs. They have quippy little ...

    I adore finding another bear book to share and to love. It?s not a ?new? story, but Jory John has written one full of chuckles that shows no matter how we might like a bit of ?alone? time from a friend, it?s also good to have that friend arrive at just the best moment. Bea...

    If you have ready any of Jory John's prior books in this series, this one will not disappoint! Duck is excited to hang out with Bear, but Bear is on a fishing trip. A fishing trip?! Duck, saddened, tries to find ways to entertain himself for a week while Bear is gone, but he misses his...

    Bear just wants to be alone with his own thoughts and do a little fishing. But he can't put up the tent and it starts raining and getting dark and he's scared. When Bear left, Duck was frantic. What would he do without his friend Bear. So Duck takes off in search of Bear. Luckily Duck ...

    Easily the most laugh out loud funny of the three of them. The illustration of duck popping out of the bushes, the smiley face carved into the tree stump, Oh I loved it and so did the school I read it to. ...

    So funny! We all have that one friend (or we ARE that friend) who is annoying and pesters and talks, but you love them anyway? The illustrations are great too. Detailed without being too much. I just loved this book. ...

    Duck wants to hang out with bear. But Bear's gone fishing for a whole week. What will Duck do while Bear is gone. How will he survive without his best pal? Come Home Already! is a laugh out loud story of two unlikely friends who can't live without each other. Great for storytime! ...

    A cute book about an annoying duck that goes to find his neighbor (bear) who has gone off on a camping trip. This would make a really cute read aloud! *Side note, what kind of bear doesn't know how to catch fish...and why does he use a banana for bait. The world may never know. ...

    Fantastic book to talk about needing independence and alone time - but not too much of it! ...

    so funny! ...

    Such a sweet story of friends. ...

    Cute, funny and very similar to his other Bear and Duck stories. Goodnight Already will always be my favorite. ...

    I can hear my storytime kids giggling at duck and bear. This book teaches that even though people get on your nerves you can still miss them a LOT! ...

    Not quite as funny as the others in the series. ...

    Funny and cute ...

    I just really didn't care for it. Nothing about it stood out. Duck and Bear may simply not be my cup of tea. ...

    Bear goes camping and discovers that being alone can be difficult. Goose is sad that Bear is gone so he sets out to find him. The friends camp out for the night and have a wonderful time (mostly). ...

    Bear's softening up a bit. He was glad when Duck tracked him down in the forest and camped with him. ...

    Excellent art. ...

    Super cute. Made me actually laugh out loud. Reminded me of Pig and Elephant - that type of opposites attract duo friendship. ...
