    1. This modern fantasy book, good for grades kindergarten-2, is a cute book that has no words. This makes me love this book especially because it gives so much creative freedom to the reader, that it can be any type of book. This allows for so many uses in the classroom. An example of this would be by giving the children the book and having them create their own story to complete the book. I just love the freedom involved with this book and how the pictures allow you to make your own story every ti [...]

    2. Carl at the Dog Show by Alexandra Day is a great read aloud book for children ages from 3-7. This book is chosen to be a wordless book although, there are a few sentences in the beginning and ending pages. Even if a child is unable to read yet, this book has plenty of illustrations that tells it all. The pictures are very realistic and cute. This book must have meant a great deal to the author because, on the beginning page, it read "For Zabiaga: whose bright spirit will never be forgotten by th [...]

    3. Carl at the Dog Show is a wordless picture book about a rottweiler named Carl and his adventures at the dog show. The only words are on the first page where a mother is telling her young daughter and Carl to keep out of trouble. The little girl then hops on Carl's back and rides him into the dog show. Carl proceeds to get groomed, look at dog beds, play with other dogs, and do tricks. He is awarded best babysitter for watching over the little girl. Another dog receives a champion award, but on t [...]

    4. Beautifully illustrated picture book with very few words. Almost an I Spy. Provides lots of room for discussion between adults and young readers. Love how it has the little index in the back with pictures of types of dogs and says, "can you find these in the book?" It gets kids to read the book all over again. Cute.

    5. This was a very unique book. There are only three or so pages that actually have words on them which makes for a fun experience reading the book. This gives children the opportunity to write the story themselves and use the pictures as an aid to what they think is happening in the book. This creative freedom will make for a memorable experience for kids.

    6. One thing I love about these Carl books (other than the gorgeous and detailed illustrations) is the different interpretations the story can take because of the lack of words. I overheard my husband reading this book to my daughter and he took a completely different route with the story than I didlots of room for creativity and imagination!

    7. I again really liked this book. I read it for my author study assignment in my Children's Literature class. It was really cute. I love the detail that Alexandra Day puts in to her illustrations and the attention to detail that Carl has, always getting Madeline back on time. They are the cutest pair and Carl is the best babysitter ever.

    8. A book with little to no text which gives students the opportunity to read through the illustrations in the book in order to find out what is going on. I really like the idea of having a dog as the main character because many children can relate to these types of books by Alexandra Day mostly due to the amount of people who have dogs.

    9. Carl is every Mother's dream babysitter. In this book, Carl and Madeleine go to the Dog Show to watch his brother, Gamble! How I wish my little one had a dog like him when she was growing up. Perfect to read at any age!

    10. Not the same humor and near catastrophes that I have come to expect from this beautifully illustrated mostly pictures picture book series. However, Carl is still that lovable big dog that wins the readers heart.

    11. This dog show is full of action and detail about the happenings of a dog show. Included at the end is "Be a dog detective!", which teaches the reader about different breeds as they go back to find them in the book.

    12. I love the artwork in each of these books! Great stories told mostly through pictures. Carl is the best babysitter!!

    13. Almost no actual writing but great artwork, and the fun of a search and find for the kids. Emma loved pointing at all the puppies!

    14. Carl fans and dog lovers will enjoy this story about a day at the Dog Show. A great dog glossary at the end encourages young eyes to search the illustrations for various dog breeds.

    15. Carl on another outting, this time surrounded by adios breeds of dogs. Not so much mischief this time so not as imaginative narrative line, but still enjoyable.
