Carl's Afternoon in the Park by Alexandra Day
This book is not a good book to be in the classroom, as there is nothing that can be taught. This book is just purely for entertainment. One of my favorite parts of this book is when the three of them are looking through the binoculars and on the next page it shows what they see and on one image it shows the mom and the friend sitting down to have tea. I think it was very clever of the author. Jan 27, Sarah Jones rated it it was amazing Shelves: children.
It was always one of my favorites and I really enjoy showing it to kids now. The fact that there are no words only pictures always seems to really excite kids because they can "read" it just as well as adults can, if not better. Some parents get upset over the fact that the "idiot mom" leaves her kid alone with only a dog to watch her, but it's a book so please get over it. It is not a "how to" on kid raising it simply is showing the pure way children and animals see things so unaffected by the corrupted ways adults look at life.

It is simple, adorable, and a little crazy so don't read to far in to it just laugh at the beautiful illustrations and hug your child when they giggle at the silly puppy's antics.

This book is similar the book Monkey Goes Bananas, where the story is told by the pictures and a few words. The plot of this book is a little sketchy, because the mom just leaves her child with a dog to watch her. But if you ignore that part, the book is really fun to read with kids. They get to interact a lot, becaus ethey can explain what the story is through the pictures.
Oct 12, Jean O'Shea rated it really liked it Shelves: lis As with all Carl stories, the author knows just how to make a story move through pictures alone. It seems each character has its own narrative for the reader to cultivate. The story changes to meet the needs of the reader. There, also, seems an ethereal calm to the chaos that surrounds our friend Carl. In this installment, Carl is left alone to care not only for the baby, but for a Rottweiler puppy at the park.

The first page and the last page of the book have text; so, the viewer interprets the middle of the book from viewing the page by page action. Mother, baby and Carl the dog meet another lady with her puppy in the park. The ladies decide to go to tea and leave Carl the dog in charge of caring for the baby and the puppy. The 3 get into all kinds of fun until the ladies return. Sep 21, Sara rated it did not like it. I hate this book. More than the first Carl book. I didn't even realize I had reserved it at the library until my son pulled it out of the bag.
I could not get past my irritation and then found it compounded by the antics of the puppy. I enjoy the Carl books because of nostalgia, but I'm also coming to see how good they can be for young kids. Having no words allows them to engage with the story entirely on their own. It can also hone storytelling skills which is what I did. The concept is strange: lady leaves her baby with a dog all the time, and they get into all sorts of weird mischief. But the fuzzy-yet-realistic illustrations are nice.
I bought this for my preschoolers. This is a wonderful picture book. With only words on the first and last pages it is a perfect book for my 2 year old to read herself. And I just have to add for those outraged about a book where a dog takes care of a baby It is just a book. It's fantasy Do you also object to books with talking bears? Or dancing cats? Or Peter Pan? Use it as a tool to teach your child the difference between fiction and reality.
Feb 03, Kristen Thompson rated it liked it Shelves: sequencing , picture-books , predicting , description. This a a colorful and engaging book for children. It begins with words only on the first page and ends with words only on the last page. A Mom and her friend decide to get tea and leave the baby and puppy with the older dog for the day. They go on lots of adventures and visit many different places.
The book at this point only uses pictures which makes it a great book for children to describe, predict, and sequence. The illustrations are also very realistic. A whimsical, funny and magical adventure, this is a chunky book with with a brilliantly practical heroine at its heart. As a bonus, a sequel is due to arrive next month. And a new release for this age group that moved me recently is Black Cockatoo. This is an evocative, short, illustrated book from Carl Merrison and Hakea Hustler in which a young Aboriginal teen girl learns to draw inner strength from her family and culture.

It's an outsider. Sounds a little like us humans, right? Grocery stores are mini versions of our world. They're beautiful. There are so many different cultures, backgrounds and ideals, in the form of products and foods, sitting on the shelves next to each other. Just like our world; it's a melting pot of history, experiences and perspectives. We thought it would be fun to explore the idea of what happens behind the aisles of grocery stores.
