COMMUNITY REVIEWS

just okay submitted by fairytale on July 18, 2013, 6:32pm I checked out this book as it came highly recommended by the top 100 lists, but I thought it was just so-so.

great book! submitted by manz on July 16, 2014, 11:47am Preschoolers think this book is hilarious! And it's a fun book to read aloud. Definitely a winner around AADL!

Funny for the intended audience submitted by romanticmind on July 11, 2015, 10:18am My 3 year old still goes around saying "Bark, George!" even though we read this book months ago. I didn't find it terribly funny but I suppose it still did the job!

I laughed out loud! submitted by downing on July 25, 2015, 2:09am Fun book for young children.

The old lady reverse submitted by jackson.sarah.jean on February 6, 2016, 6:22pm Well, come on, bark George...meow! This funny book captures an opposite effect of the old lady who swallowed a fly. With this book you don't know what sound or animal will come out next. George's poor mom is so concerned her son won't bark she takes him to the vet. What happens next is a fun imaginative twist. Children will laugh and enjoy the plot of getting George to bark.

The best comes last submitted by FordAlpha on June 16, 2017, 9:30pm Several years ago and 1500 miles from here, feeling a bit of ennui on my weekly library trip with small children, I asked the librarian at the children's desk: "What is the best read-aloud for a two-year-old that I may not have encountered yet?" She didn't hesitate: "Have you read 'Bark, George'?" "No," I replied, "But my daughter loves dogs." She gave me a bit of a sideways look and led me into the stacks, where she pulled this book from the shelf and handed it over with a smile.

The sideways look, it turned out, was because "Bark, George" is not really a dog book. It's a comedy-of-surprise book. And I now follow that librarian's lead: I recommend "Bark, George" to moms of young children every chance I get. It's a terrific read-aloud. George's mother's expressions are perfectly rendered. And you might not be terribly surprised by the time the vet extracts a cow from little George, but you will be surprised by the last page. It's the best joke of the whole book.

Great for new readers submitted by KOH on July 11, 2017, 9:08am My 6 year old enjoys reading this cute book aloud!

:D submitted by Xris on August 4, 2017, 6:32pm Our summer preschoolers love this book! They also like making the pieces to act out the story, with a paper-bag George.
