    About "Alexandra Day"

    1. Alexandra Day

      Alexandra Day is the pseudonym for Sandra Louise Woodward Darling She is the author of Good Dog, Carl and the rest of the beloved Carl books, including Carl Goes Shopping, Carl s Christmas, Carl s Birthday and Carl s Snowy Afternoon Darling was born in 1941 in Cincinnati, Ohio, to a large and close knit family Painting was a popular family recreation, and almost every family excursion included one or easels and a variety of sketch pads, chalks, paints, and pencils For four years, the family lived on a hundred acre farm in Kentucky Here young Sandra grew especially fond of riding and training horses, and became a dog owner for the first time Living in the country also provided plenty of time for reading, a life long passion.Sandra illustrated her first book in 1983 The Teddy Bears Picnic, a popular children s song by Jimmy Kennedy That same year, she was visiting Zurich, Switzerland, when she came across a volume of old German picture sheets, one of which featured a poodle playing with a baby who was supposed to be taking a nap This image proved the inspiration for Good Dog, Carl The Darlings own dog, a Rottweiler named Toby, was the model for the book s main character Since then, two other Darling Rottweilers have posed as Carl in the seven sequels the late Arambarri, who was named for one of the Darlings favorite jai alai players and Zabala, who currently moonlights as an Our Best Friend therapy dog, visiting hospitals to cheer patients.About her work Sandra says I think that one of the reasons my illustrations have appealed to people is that they can sense my sincerity I know that marvels exist which are just outside our ordinary experience, but that at any moment we may turn a corner and encounter one of them Children also believe this, and because they and I have this conviction in common, we, as creator and audience, make good partners Sandra lives in Seattle, Washington with her husband, Haroldcmillan author alexan

    1. Picture book based on paintings to show the different things that children could find attractive during their trip to a department store The paintings are very simple and easy to understand for little children Few vocabulary is used, so it could be use to encourage the children to use their voice to describe the story of the book Ages 2 5.




    2. This book is interesting and is sort of like one of my past me It s interesting because the dog takes the baby to a store exploration of food, clothing, and other types of stores This could also remind or let others know that the dog must be leashed tight and that the dog won t run off or escape The most interesting fact is that dogs have the ability to take care of children I was taken care of by a dog when I was born and have treated the dog as a guardian or close friend until the day my dog p [...]


    3. This is a brilliant picture book for children of all ages The plot was hilarious and the illustrations were captivating Although there are very few words, this book can be used for older children to help build their inferring skills This is truly a great read It has found it s way to my top 10 favorite children s book.


    4. I love this book, because it teaches children how to be responsible This book is a fun book for all children to read even for the little ones who don t know how to read yet This book is perfect for children to develop their imagination This picture book is perfect for toddlers and for the parents to read to their children.


    5. I like all the Carl books we ve read so far and how the illustrations tell the story than the words I also like the way they place a kinder light on a stereotyped breed of dogs These storylines do encourage mischief however, I ll keep renting Day s books from the library because the illustrations are gorgeous and my boys sit and watch me turn the pages as if they are watching a video.


    6. This is a great picture book for children of all ages The plot is hilarious and the illustrations were captivating It teaches children how to be responsible The book has few words so it could be a good selection for building vocabulary for young children However, it can be used for older children to help build their inferring skills.


    7. My 12 month old loved it There are so few words so I pointed out each picture explained what they are doing maybe I exaggerated a bit and she just laughed and laughed The artwork is just perfect and we are definitely going to be a Carl family


    8. I forgot that Carl books had no words This is excellent for emerging readers because they can invent to story Every time they read the story it can be different The dog taking care of the child can also help some children who may have a fear of dogs to over come the fear.


    9. Great Illustrations It shows pet and baby bonding Could make up your own story as you look at the pictures not very wordy.


    10. SO CUTE Although I must say that in one drawing the baby is shown looking directly at the reader.dat baby looks a tad ugly lol just being honest


    11. Good picture book to allow children to make up the story or tell the story how they want to tell it I remember this book from when I was little and it gave me appreciation for dogs.


    12. I don t know if it s just my preference, but I enjoy books that tell a story with words instead of just pictures.The illustrations in this book are beautiful, however.


    13. This book has a lot of humor and objects that stand out to children to keep them interested The mall is the most exciting place for any child at any age because there are so many bright, and hands on objects to see Carl was a very curious pet dog but he made sure he kept up with his friend, mother s baby Carl is the most responsible dog I have ever met or read about He was able to get back on time, which shows that dogs and other animals have great time management and are a baby s and humans bes [...]

    25. I was ready to read this book but yet my surprise is that it doesn t have many words to read The story is understandable even with out words in it I am not a dog fan and I will not leave my baby alone with a Rottweiler The mother is being negligent with the baby and dog Maybe the point is to show that a dog can take care of a person, it shows loyalty and caring and yes there are many cases of that For me is not a educational book in my opinion but yet every head is a different world I give it a [...]
