Fetch; Jorey Hurley

 Fetch, Jorey Hurley
Simon & Schuster Kids - Pamela Wiserman Books


If a cat, like my lap friend Buddy, likes Fetch, you just know it's a terrific book.

Chidlren's author/illustrator Jorey Hurley knows how to create beautiful children's books. Her concept of less being more results in the perfect combination -- minimal words and gorgeous illustrations that creates a learning opportunity for little ones. Small pre-school children will not only learn to enjoy books but, will also learn about words at the same time.

In this simple story about a happy day at the beach, one dog spends his time playing in the sand and surf with his red ball.  Each turn of the page will show two lovely illustrations and one new word  to match the action on the page.  Little readers will learn the following words: search, splash, swim, dive, seek crash, meet, catch, run, play, float, find, give and again.

A beautiful book to add to the the collection and to pass down for others to enjoy.  The author's first book, Nest, was one that I loved and purchased. Fetch, is a "must buy" as well.

5/5 stars

  3. What charming illustrations! (Not to mention picture accompanying your post.) They remind me a bit of the dog in Jacquie Lawson's e-cards...Chumley, I believe he's called. There's just something so wonderful about dogs. And picture books.
