Opinion

From Library Staff

Bark, George is a silly favorite. A young dog is having trouble with the most basic of dog functions, barking. He meows and moos, but no arfs! What is a mother to do?

This is one of my all-time favorite read-aloud books for storytime! Children will quickly catch on to the pattern and will be delighted to predict what happens next. The ending leaves room for excellent speculation.

Why can't George bark? This is a fun picture book to read out loud.

This book will have all ages laughing their heads off! Little George has gotten himself in a pickle that his mother can`t believe. It`s a great read-aloud that contains tons of potential for interaction with a group of kids from toddler through kindergarten age. The kids and adults
will be oinking, mooing and quacking along.

Fun book to share about a dog who can't bark, or can he!

A must read for all ages! After reading this book, and recovering from laughing, I began making animal sounds to my 4 year old grandchildren. More fun than saying words! Good book to read if you are down in the dumps.
