Book review: Can an Aardvark Bark?, by Melissa Stewart, illustrated by Steve Jenkins

Stewart, Melissa. Can an Aardvark Bark? Il. by Steve Jenkins. Beach Lane, 2017. $17.99. unp. ISBN 978-1-4814-5852-8. Ages 3-7. P9Q9

Representational cut-and-torn-paper double-page collage depictions of animals highlight the noises—barks, grunts, squeals, whines, bellows, growls, and laughs—that animals use to communicate. The author asks a rhyming question about the sound and then explains other animals that make this sound. The last page asks readers to make the same noises, making this a fun, albeit noisy, read-aloud.

Verdict: Fun plus educational!
