PICTURE BOOK REVIEW

Posted on: July 19, 2010

           Yip! Snap! Yap!
           Charles Fuge
           Author and Illustrator
           Sterling Publishing, 2010
           Ages 3-8
          
           This is an accumulative rhyme picture book that is
           as colourful as it is interesting. Fuge describes all
           sizes, shapes, colours and kinds of dogs.
          
           There are sleepy dogs, greedy dogs, rowdy dogs,
           itchy dogs, yappy dogs, hot dogs, guard dogs, sniffer
           dogs, and puppy dogs. He describes these dogs in a
           cute fashion that both girls and boys will love.
          
           Children will also be entranced by the illustrations
           in the book and prose that keeps moving almost as
           fast as the reader who turns the page. The book is
           also funny and cute. Many readers will be giggling as
           they read.
          
           When I read this book to a group of 2nd graders,
           they were totally enthralled by the prose. And then
           when they saw some of the illustrations, they were
           truly mesmerized. Some of these kids went out to
           buy the book.

           
           
           Rating: 3 roses out of 5
