Dogs of many sizes and breeds accompany their owners to an extensive dog park for a day of canine cavorting.The story begins with two dogs, a Chihuahua and a Great Dane that live together, waiting by their door with excitement about going to the park. Other dogs proceed in turn to the park with their owners, a multicultural cast of human characters of different ages and ethnicities. The dog owners include older adults, two women in hijabs, and an interracial pair of dads with their baby. The dogs and their humans play and interact in small groups in vignettes and single-page illustrations, followed by a double-page spread with all the characters in action spread across the wide expanse of the well-appointed park. The dogs and owners then return to their homes for food and naps, during which some of the dogs dream of their time at the park. The minimal text unfolds in rhyming couplets with just a few words per page. The spare text is well-matched with delicate, detailed illustrations in pen and ink with watercolor and colored pencil, with extensive use of white space. This deceptively simple story can be used with a wide range of young readers: toddlers just starting to listen to real stories, preschoolers who like finding tiny details in illustrations, and emergent readers who will be able to handle the short, amusing text. There's a place for everyone at this dog park, with an inclusive, cheerful atmosphere and a subtle message that everyone can play together and get along.

The pages depicts a variety of families with their pets engaged in many outdoor activities. The pen-and-ink, watercolor, and colored pencil illustrations capture a wide array of breeds and types of dogs. The rhyming text is limited to a sentence or two per page. After a day of sunshine and frolic, "Dogs take a drink. Dogs yawn and blink. Dogs in a heap. Dogs go to sleep...and dream in the dark...Park! Park! Park!" VERDICT An upbeat and exuberant read-aloud for dog lovers everywhere. Great for one-on-one, storytime, or class visit to the library.-Annmarie Braithwaite, New York Public Library © Copyright 2018.

Most dog owners know that the mere mention of the word park will result in perked ears, wagging tails, and eager looks. This lively book captures that excitement from the canine perspective, celebrating the opportunity to run wild, free of leashes; to chase squirrels; befriend other dogs; gleefully roll in the mud; and, yes, drink out of the toilet when they get home. Krishers punchy couplets are composed of short phrases with no more than four to five syllables: Dog in a hat. / Dog on a lap. / Dogs on a ride. / Dogs down a slide. The text features a catchy refrain: Dogs at the park / Bark! Bark! Bark! Theres lots of humor and detail in the watercolor, colored-pencil, and pen-and-ink illustrations that play on dog-breed personalities and their relationships with their human companions. An older man with a Great Dane and a Chihuahua comes to the park carrying a tote bag that reads Be Kind; the huge Great Dane curls up on his lap while the tiny Chihuahua barks fiercely at a squirrel. With its concise rhymes and action-filled illustrations of canine antics, the book evokes P. D. Eastmans Go, Dog. Go! (theres even a poodle wearing a hat) and makes for a cheerful preschool read-aloud. julie hakim azzam (c) Copyright 2018. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
