Title: A Greyhound, A Groundhog
Author: Emily Jenkins
Illustrator: Chris Appelhans
Jenkins plays with language and sound in this beautifully illustrated adventure about a greyhound and a groundhog. The “grey little round hound” and the “found little roundhog” chase each other “around and around and around and around,” resulting in a soft, pretty swirl of watercolors on the page. This fast paced, energetic story is a perfect read aloud that shows how some sounds repeat themselves in different words.
