Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a sweet story. Bear decides he's sick of being a bear and wants to be a duck, so duck shows him how to be a duck and while it doesn't quite work out, they end up friends in a really sweet ending. Just a nice story about accepting who you are, your talents and your purpose. The drawings are so great too. One of my favorite kids' books that we've gotten for our toddler so far.
