Happy Wednesday! Today I bring you a book that is an adaptation to the traditional song, Doggie Went A-Courtin’ by Angel Wheeler. I personally have never heard the song this book is an adaptation to, but the book was very creative. It’s about a dog that goes to court a cat, and then decide to marry. For their wedding, who else do they invite but the prairie dog, a shy bobcat, and many more friends. You will be rhyming along with this cute story.
Like I mentioned above, I have never heard of the adaptation of the song, but I did think that the story itself was very cute. It had the perfect rhyming to it that went along great with the story. The illustrations, done by Nicolas Lonprez, were actually done really well. They had that classic look to the book and the pictures went along great with all of the pages of the story. The only thing that I would like to seen improvements wise to this book would be try and make the fonts a little consistent. They kind of went from big to small on different pages, and on some pages, they were hard to read in some spots. If they were perhaps moved to a different location on the page, I think it would be a lot easier to read. Other than that, I had no complaints. A very cute, and catchy book that any child and parent would enjoy reading together. This book is only available on Amazon Kindle right now. So if you have a kindle, take a look at this book.
