One thought on “Carl's Summer Vacation

  1. Manybooks

    I just so much adore Alexandra Day s evocative illustrations, and the plotline of this almost wordless picture book is almost too sweet and touching for my poor words Carl s Summer Vacation truly is an absolute treasure in every way The basic story brings back all sorts of fond and homey memories for me, as I do well remember using our own dear Rottweiler as a pony when we were toddlers we could do almost anything with her, and she was the most wonderful playmate I also absolutely love the scene [...]

    So, what s with this situation Years ago I read to young children Good Dog, Carl, Carl Goes Shopping, and Carl s Afternoon in the Park Have these gotten even better or I do like these books better when I m simply reading them to myself I came very close to giving this book 5 stars 4 stars.This is a very funny story about Carl the dog and Madeleine the little girl, who go off on a multi part adventure, and end up puzzling the adults in the family.The illustrations are so striking They re beautifu [...]

    Carl and his charge are supposed to be spending the afternoon napping so they can stay awake for the big fireworks display, but instead they re boating, swimming, and playing baseball Will they both be too pooped to party later Another adorable chapter in Carl s very active life.

  4. Carol

    One in a series of Carl books, this particular picture storybook depicts a day in the life of Carl, the big dog, and a little girl who vacation with their family at a cabin during the summer The beautiful illustrations tell the story of the little girl and her dog s adventures over the course of a summer day Cultural experiences typical of an early July day are evident with a canoe ride on the lake Of course the girl is wearing a lifejacket , a doggie back ride through a berry patch, fun on slid [...]

  5. Dolly

    This is another fun book featuring a dog named Carl We ve read a few of these stories, and while I cringe when I see an unsupervised child by an adult , I know that the story is just meant to be a fun tale Since the story is mostly told through pictures, with little narrative, our girls took turns telling the story as we flipped through the pages The story is entertaining and the ending, while predictable, is humorous Although the story wasn t specifically about Independence Day, the fireworks a [...]

  6. Libby

    I ve always had reservations about Carl my innate unease about really big dogs meant I ve always felt a little nervous about leaving the baby with a Rottweiler However, Carl has always proven trustworthy about the baby s safety, at any rate and now my kids have discovered and fallen in love with him This is a newer Carl adventure, and the baby has grown up to be a preschooler named Madeleine Aside from the joy of skipping out on naptime to play with the dog, I think part of the appeal of this pa [...]

    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.

  8. Kaitlyn

    This is the first book that I have read about Carl, the dog I can t say enough about it The illustrations are beautiful I also love that even the book has a basic story premise, most of the pages are just pictures and Addison I loved describing each page I will most likely be purchasing these in the future.

  9. Carrie

    There are several wordless pages, so it s not good for a group read aloud, but I don t mind It s too charming not to love the adventures of this sweet Rottweiler, and kids would like talking about what s on the page, so it s still a good way to spend time looking at the book together.

  10. Donna Mork

    Carl takes baby for a summer adventure boating and playing ball and playing on a playground At dinner and fireworks that night they are too tired to eat or watch.

  11. Amy

    Wordless NarrativeI love all of the Carl books Since they only contain words on the first and last pages, they are good for all ages, even adults This story begins with the woman needing to clean and prepare dinner, so she puts the little girl and Carl down for a nap When the woman leaves, the little girl and Carl go for a canoe ride, a walk to pick some berries, the park to play, and the beach for a bite to eat Then, they race home just in time for the woman to wake them for their nap and then [...]

    My shelf of wordless books is not very deep I do not have a broad horizon as far as wordless picture books go I read Carl s Summer Vacation and I thought it was a good wordless book It was very detailed in it s illustration and the illustrations were very life like It had very few words, which made the story line up to you to figure out through illustration Madeleine and her dog Carl were supposed to take a nap, but when the mom left, Madeleine and Carl snuck out for an adventure They went canoe [...]

  13. Meg McGregor

    Carl is the babysitter every Mom wants and needs Carl and Madeleine are supposed to be napping boy little Madeline must take long naps But instead of napping they spend the day exploring the lake and surrounding areas their parents have taken them to for July 4th.Read again on June 27, 2014.

  14. Paul

    Thankfully, most of the storyline in the Carl books is delivered through the illustrations and without words Carl and toddler have their usual escapade, but this one doesn t hit the high point of being unexpected and hilarious Nonetheless, Day is skillful is sticking together a narrative line that leaves us wanting .

  15. Virginia Brace

    I like the way Carl thoroughly enjoys life He goes with his family to their cabin As the rest of the family moves in, cleans up and prepares for the evening activities, he and Madeleine are supposed to be napping Instead, they go out in a canoe, get involved in a softball game, enjoy a picnic and have a very active afternoon Great pictures.

  16. Wendy

    This children s picture book has some of the most beautiful illustrations I ve ever seen Such a wonderful choice for children and dog lovers alike, this nearly wordless summer tale is sure to enchant.

  17. Meghan Gilkey

    This book would be cute for having first or second graders fill in the blanks of the plot of the story This book is about a girl and her dog who end up missing evening festivities because they do not take a nap like they were supposed to.

  18. Emma

    Carl and puppy are supposed to be napping Instead, they find a boat and go on a little adventure A nice little almost wordless story.

  19. Carrie Guipe

    Wow, a sequel that doesn t disappoint Yes, it s Carl up to the same shenanigans, but we love the shenanigans Art is lovely My two year old loved it and wanted to read it over and over.

  20. Elizabeth

    This mostly wordless picture book has beautiful paintings of Carl, the dog, and Madeleine, the little girl, as they spend a day together on adventures unbeknownst to Mom and Dad Clever

  21. Zann

    I love the artwork in each of these books Great stories told mostly through pictures Carl is the best babysitter
