   My favorite childrens book
This is a perfect book to read to or with a child. It has a good but simple storyline, surprises and great opportunities for fun and dramatic sounds as we discover the reasons why George goes Moo, Oink and Quack instead of being able to bark. I read it to a kindergartener and now she asks for it every time we read it. This uber-simple story has charm, surprise, sly wit and enough repetition of words to encourage the youngest reader. I found it is a surprise favorite of some older readers too -- a second-grader quickly swooped out of a pile of books and wanted to read it together. I had no idea that he wrote books for children and am delighted to include it now as one of my very top picks for books to read for children K-2 or perhaps older.
   Loved this book
I bought this for my 3 12 year old grandson and when I read it for the first time, I have to admit that I was a little reluctant to give it to him at this age. I was not sure if he would get the humor and if he did, would it give him nightmares? Well, he sleeps, and no, he gets just fine in spite of it. It is a quick read. Anyone who goes through the ritual of bedtime with just one more will appreciate that. B. and C. It is just so much fun to read books like this and watch a preschooler's sense of humor unfold.
   A Puppy Who Has to Learn Dog Talk, But...
An impossible story of a puppy who couldn t say arf. He could make sounds of wild animals... because they were in him, which takes a wild imagination to believe, but the story line is so wonderfully silly that the listenersviewers readers can not help, but fantasize just for the fun of it. This is a very good read-aloud book and students in the pre-school to grade 1 love it. Grades K-3. Fanciful fiction picture book grades. The language arts teacher activities for creative arts.
   My favorite book on my children's library
By far, this is my favorite book to read to my children. I have been reading it to them since they were 2, and the simple story doesn 't grow old. They are now 8 and 10 and still ask me to read it to them. I keep buying this book to give to my pregnant friends as a present.
   So much fun in so few pages!
We love to read this at bedtime. What a simple but brilliant story that makes us all laugh. Indeed, George Bark is a dog!
   My story-time children LOVE this book!
We read this book at Preschool Story Time, the group ranged from two to five years old, and the children loved it. Everyone was oinking and meowing and arfing and quacking. And HELLO.
   Great Classic Children’s Book
This funny story about a puppy who makes many different animal noises before he learns to bark is a great read for preschool to young school children. I used it to help preschoolers associate specific sounds with animal species. It also lends well to extension lessons on word associations. Teaching children that words like hammer-nail, letter-mailbox, and umbrella-rain are mental word pairs that help develop their vocabulary and associated file cabinet. Great for use by teachers and speechlanguage pathologists... as well as parents of young children.
   Such a cute book
He keeps wanting to read it over and over again and the book makes him giggle every time! He is so excited that he talks to his grandma and friends about it!
   Approved by a thousand or more pre-K students
I am a Pre - Kindergarten teacher of art. After students complete their art projects, I read a book to them. This is the most special ed time I have had, recite it word for word. Everybody loves it,It is one of the books I always buy, because the other two essential books are Goodnight Gorilla and The Incredible Book Eating Boy. I have read the Incredible Book Eating Boy to several thousand children from kindergarten through fifth grade as a substitute teacher. I became known as the sub who eats the book about the boy who read books,Buy all three. The kids love them all. They are better baby gifts than cutsie - clothes the kid will outgrow before they are worn out.
   Bark George
I could only read the first few pages in the book feature in the look. The vet literally pulls the full sized animals from the dog... not something I would read to my children. It ends with hello, so the vet would have to pull a full-sized human from the puppy by extrapolation. I think that books can be fun, but shouldn 't lie. I did not like it at all... and I can not give it to children.
