“Would you like to meet a talking dog?” Who wouldn’t! Ralph is not your typical canine–he’s constructed from a zipper, pop top from a soda can, buttons, corrugated card board and zig zag pressed paper. His proud owner asks just the right questions to elicit correct answers. “What’s your name?” “Rrrraplph, Ralph,” or “Hey where are you?” “Roof, roof,” as Ralph responds atop his dog house. Kids catch on to the word play and start to guess the answers. Clever collage illustrations set against vibrant backgrounds cause the repetition of words–“Wolf, wolf,” or “Yep, yep, yep,”–to pop and provide a beginning reading lesson for kids. All around, this is a great book for individual cuddle time or a classroom read-aloud.
