Children's Book of the Week:
'Bark, George.'

Each week our children's librarian is going to choose a different book to feature that she thinks is special.
 

This week's book is 'Bark George,' written and illustrated by Jules Feiffer.  This simple and hilarious picture book is all about George the dog, who makes other animal noises instead of barking.  When his mother takes him to the vet, all different kinds of animals are pulled out of George.

 

Kids will love making the different animals sounds along with George, and guessing which animal is going to come next.  The simple cartoon illustrations will help children follow the story.  A great book to read aloud.  Best for ages 2-6.
