    Maybe the lack of appeal for me is that I don't think I could pull reading this out loud off. Two animal surfers run afoul a shark and resulting adventures occur with just the use of one work and (I admit I was sick of it by the end of the story.) ...

    Not completely wordless, but still lots of fun. The limited vocabulary lets kids think of their own words to go with the story. Looks like lots of fun! ...

    Proof that the way a word is said (or read, in this case) alters its meaning. The single word of text (hint: if you've read the title, you've read the book) effectively demonstrates this concept through the font, punctuation usage, and, Dan Santat's signature illustrations. The eye-pop...

    3.5 for me because I liked it much more upon a second reading. Relying on one word repeated throughout the story but in different typefaces and colors, this almost wordless picture book follows the surfing adventures of a beaver and a platypus. Phrases such as "FAR OUT!" and "GNARLY" a...

    So this isn't wordless...but it is nearly wordless (three words and two of them are "dude" and "dudes" so really, lots of things happen that you have to get just from the illustrations). So good. REALLY. It is So. Good. And funny. And totally perfect for summer reading story time. ...

    This is one of my new favorite books. After reading it to several groups of kindergartners I can safely say that this is a winning book. Aaron Reynolds and Dan Santat make for a thoroughly marvelous team. While the book only uses one word throughout (Dude!), the way it is used makes fo...

    In this clever picture book, the text uses one word - dude - throughout the entire story. But that one word takes on so many different meanings and shades of meaning. There is a sweet story about friends having a terrific time at the beach together and another misunderstood shark that ...

    So much fun! I love reading "one word" stories, and this one is sure to entertain. ...

    RTC There's not much to say about the words in this book, as there are all of two ("Dude" in its many variations, and one instance of "Splat!"), but it's in Dan Santat's illustrations that readers will come to understand what's going on here, through the facial expressions and surro...

    Every culture has its own legends and lingo. A particular group of people within a separate culture understand every nuance of their spoken words and individualistic body language. To step into a culture without understanding the separate parts which make it a significant whole is like...

    I went into this book with high expectations because I really like Dan Santat and Aarron Reynolds. I'm sad to say, I was disappointed. I did like how the book only uses one (repeated) word but tells a story. Although, if I were Reynolds, I'm not sure I would bother taking credit for th...

    Thank you to @kidlitexchange #partner for the review copies of these books. All opinions are my own. It amazes me how a story of acceptance and friendship can be so passionately told through the use of two words and spectacular illustrations...but it can! Aaron Reynolds uses the wo...

    Dude! rocks, dudes! In this entertaining picture book, two dudes, a platypus and a beaver, go surfing. They meet another dude, a shark. They offer him ice cream. Will they all be dudes together? The answer will provide you with plenty of enjoyment. Dude! tells a story using only...

    Dude! You simply can't go wrong with this dynamic duo. We're talking about Aaron Reynolds, the author responsible for Jasper Rabbit in Creepy Carrots and Creepy Pair of Underwear. Two books that are a HUGE hit at my K-5 school and are heavily circulated in my library. Then there's my m...

    A couple of surfin' dudes head to the ocean for a day of fun--but what is that fin in the water? A shark! Is it safe? They offer him an ice cream cone and surf board and include him in the fun, until they all smack into the rocks. OW! The surf boards are broken. What to do now? Surf th...
