Treat by Mary Sullivan -OPTIONAL

Sullivan, Mary Treat Houghton Mifflin Harcourt , 2016.  $14.99.  PICTURE BOOK
This picture book features only a single word used over and over “Treat”. That is because there is a family dog who is obsessed with treats. After he pesters everyone in the family for treats, will one family member learn the lesson and give the dog a special treat? Illustrations are harmonious and told in a light comic book format.
Anyone who has a dog knows that this is probably the single word in their dogs head as well. But even as a dog owner myself, I thought the repetitiveness was annoying after a while. The art is adorable and could easily work for pre-k,or a gift for a dog lover, but I probably wouldn’t at it to my school library.

Pre-K, EL(K-3) – OPTIONAL Reviewer: Stephanie Elementary School Librarian & Author.
