Dogku

Andrew Clements (2007), 40 pages
Illustrated by Tim Bowers
Audience: Preschool - 4th Grade
Category: Animal, Poetry
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
Andrew Clements writes in his author's note, 'Adorable dog + Haiku = Dogku. Simple.' And it is just that simple. A stray dog shows up on the back porch of a family's home. Food, a bath, a name, and playtime follow. Then, they hold the family meeting. Will Mooch have a forever home? Clements uses the form of haiku to tell Mooch's story. In his own words, 'Choosing a small container can help you pick the perfect words and arrange them just right.' These words are, 'just right.' One last haiku from the author: An idea knocks: I open, think, write, and smile. And then it's your turn.

This preschool favorite tells the story of a pigeon who will say anything so we'll let him drive the bus. As the book begins, the bus driver leaves, asking if we'll watch the bus for him while he's gone. He ends with, 'and remember: Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!' As he walks away, the pigeon arrives and attempts to wheedle his way into driving the bus, using every strategy he knows. Luckily, when the bus driver returns, no one has let the pigeon drive the bus. Everyone can enjoy the antics of this likable bird, and parents will appreciate the apt depiction of the persuasion tactics of young children.

Down on the Farm

Merrily Kutner (2004), 32 pages
Illustrated by Will Hillenbrand

The ducks 'quack', the geese 'honk', the horses 'nay' as a naughty goat causes mild mayhem on the farm. Bold illustrations, rhyming text, and a repetitive phrase make this a great read-aloud.
