Smick is very good because it is funny. Ava, age 7.
SUMMARY: This is the blurb given for this book:
"Smick is a BIG dog.
Chick is a little chick.
So what happens when they see a stick?"
ILLUSTRATIONS: The pictures were created digitally with some mixed media. The pictures are very simple. The dog is created with simple lines as seen on the cover and there is minimal color. The dog is white on a white background. The only only color is the stick and the chick. The illustrations feel incomplete and are not eye catching.
THE GOOD: There are only about two words per page which makes this a good book to share with a pre-reader or for an emerging reader to read independently.
THE NOT AS GOOD: The story line is extremely short with no depth to it. This lessens the interest value for any age. The blurb I quoted above is pretty much the whole book in a nutshell. The book would have been better served if the illustrations supported the words of the story better. Instead, you are left scratching your head in confusion at times.
AGE RECOMMENDATION: Ages 3-7 (depending on child's reading ability) Pre-readers and emerging readers
