School Library Journal - 11/01/2018 PreS-Gr 1—The stars of Goodnight Already!, Come Home Already!, and I Love You Already!, are back in this snowy adventure. Duck hurries to share the exciting news with his friend and neighbor, but Bear is nonplussed. He doesn't want to play freeze tag or build a fort. He doesn't want to make snow bears or go sledding. Forced participation in winter events leads to a gigantic bear sneeze. Duck insists that he care for his sick friend with blankets, soup, stories, and tea until an exasperated Bear orders him out. Then, Duck begins to cough and sniffle. Of course Duck expects his good friend Bear to take good care of him. Exuberant Duck wears a scarf and hat and always has his bill open with his next great idea. The dour Bear often wears unhappy expressions. Children will giggle at the characters' personality differences. VERDICT Purchase where the series is popular or for collections in need of new winter books.—Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
