BARK PARK by Karen Gray Ruelle

BARK PARK

Age Range: 2 - 6

KIRKUS REVIEW

Doggies abound in this energetic and enthusiastic showcase of assorted canines capering in the park. Hound dogs and round dogs, small dogs and tall dogs, hot dogs and dot dogs, fat dogs and rat dogs, strong dogs and long dogs, thin dogs and grin dogs, pack dogs and track dogs, dark dogs and bark dogs, sneak dogs and leak dogs—all kinds of dogs cavort across the page, running, strolling, dashing, splashing, fetching, begging, rolling, gulping and so on. The jaunty rhyming text and bright watercolor collages showcase dogs of all shapes and sizes. From the opening pages where dogs converge on the park to the closing scenes of soapy mutts splashing in the bath and weary puppies curled up for doggie-dreams, this canine tour de force should amuse and amaze dog fans for its delightful diversity. (Picture book. 2-6)
