    Bark in the Park: Poems for Dog Lovers By Avery Corman and Illustrated by Hyewon Yum. PICTURE BOOK. Orchard (Scholastic). 2019. $18. 9781338118391



    This book features a variety of dog breeds and very short two or four line poems about them. The illustrations take place in a park and around a city.

    I could see students being interested in finding the poem about their favorite breed, or a teacher using this as a jumping off point for writing a poem about your pet. I am not much of a poetry fan but I think that young readers will be able to handle the short length of these poems and the rhyming scheme. The artwork isn’t my favorite but all the dogs and the people look happy, so it comes out very cheerful.

    {My thoughts} – Poetry is a fun way for children to learn to read and or express themselves. Many children’s books are written in a poem like form because it helps to make them catchy so that children may possibly remember the storyline better.

    The illustrations in this book are really nice. They go well with each of the small poems about many, many different breeds of dogs. I can see this book being useful for teachers wanting to introduce poetry to their class. I can also see it being a nice book for children that like dogs and poems alike. It’s a well thought out book with lots of potential.

    I think that any child could learn from this book. Let it be reading, writing a poem or just some line about their favorite breed of dog. This book has unlimited options when it comes to how it can be used in school and at home. I look forward to sharing this book with my girls when they get older as I have always enjoyed poetry.

    First sentence:

    Afghan Hound
    Although he's noble and aloof,
    He's still a dog, so he still says, Woof!

    Basset Hound
    For things she can smell,
    She's a comer and goer.
    She's much like a Beagle,
    But longer and lower.

    The beagle is bent
    On tracking a scent.
    He follows his nose
    wherever it goes.

    Premise/plot: A collection of poems about dogs/dog breeds. Each poem is short. Some poems are just two lines; other poems are all of four lines. All rhyme--for better or worse.

    My thoughts: I like the idea of liking this one. I do. But sometimes I wish authors knew that poems don't always, always, always have to rhyme in order to be poetry. Sometimes poems come across as forced. You can always tell when a poem chooses a word just because--only because--it rhymes.

    That being said, there were definitely quite a few poems in this one that I really enjoyed.

    All you have to do is gaze upon the face of a dog and know there is much more to them than meets the eye. Science tells us of their extra special sensory skills. Increasingly we are learning more about how their minds work. History tells us of their amazing feats. But the looks they give us, their body language and even the way they sigh, tell us how their souls transcend known facts.

    In 2019 two books focusing on dogs and poetry were released. The first Bark in the Park!: Poems for Dog Lovers (Orchard Books, an imprint of Scholastic Inc., March 26, 2019) written by Avery Corman with pictures by Hyewon Yum takes us on a stroll through a variety of breeds. Their characteristics are praised in lyrical phrases and animated images.

    My full recommendation:

    Adorable illustrations featuring dog lovers in their various guises as well as the most fetching hounds you'll ever see fill the pages of this book, a collection of 39 short poems inspired by dogs. The poems capture the unique personalities of these canine friends, some being a bit snooty and above it all and others being overly affectionate. Readers will feel as though they are strolling through city streets and a lovely park as they follow these dogs. There's not a dog here that I wouldn't like to have for my very own. Readers will appreciate the end papers that feature 38 different breeds of dogs. Anyone considering adding a dog to the household might want to take a look at the poems and image so they can determine if the dog they have in mind suits their own personality and home.

    Such an amazing book for dog and poetry lovers alike! This book is full of poems about different breeds of dogs trnascending in alphabetical order. The illustrations are fun and do an excellent job of differentiating between dog breeds. It is whimsicle, silly, fun, and interactive.

    I chose this book because it lends to all of the animal lovers out there. This book would be best suited for kindergarten through third grade. Not only does it give detail about the dogs, their appearance, and temperament but it does so through poems. This would be an excellent book to use to teach vocabulary and the different types of poetry.

  8. Heather says:

    This book is so great for children who live books! It is composed of short poems for each dog name imaginable. You can read it poem by poem or as a whole book. I imagine it would be good for nighttime stories or when teaching a poetry unit.

    I chose this book because I don't usually read poetry and I realize that when I'm a teacher, I'll have to teach and read poetry to my students. It's educational in the area of dogs, I suppose, but it's really a great example of how you can literally write poetry about anything, especially as inspiration for young children to begin writing poetry.

  9. Amy says:

    An adorable whimsical poetry book for children! I'm going to use it as a read aloud--teaching rhyming and vocabulary. It would also lend itself well to writing prompts--Dogs I've Loved, My Dog, etc. Of course it can be used as part of teaching poetry as well. The illustrations are beautiful. I have no doubt students will be drawn to this book. It would also be a good one for the veterinary waiting room! :)
