In a world of excessive words, the "Good Dog, Carl" series reminds me that "actions speak louder than words"! Our words may say one thing, but our actions/body language tell the truth. Do you know what 'dog' spells backwards? God. Do you know how they are alike? You can turn your back on them, abuse them, neglect them . . . & when you turn around all they want to do is to love you! Good Dog Carl reminds me that God (d-o-g) is there in everything I do . . . watching over my every action . . . but always with me 24/7. Only I can find the quietness within to hear the 'barking' of Divine Love.

This is a sweet book about Carl, a loving babysitting rottweiler. He in charge of a toddler. Once the parents leave, hilarity ensues. The story is told entirely through charming illustrations. Highlights include Carl and Toddler dancing, Toddler being dunked in a fish tank, and Carl eats a bar of soap and burps bubbles. Carl gets everything cleaned and back in order before the parents return. Carl is a very good dog.

A tender story with the most endearing illustrations of a lovable Rottweiler, Carl, who is asked by the mom to look after the baby. Carl plays with, takes care of, bathes, feeds, and cleans up after the baby. He is such a hard-working and loyal companion. This nearly wordless book gives children the opportunity to create their own narrative and use their natural storytelling skills.

One of the greatest books I never read! Twelve words, and the pictures tell the rest of the story. Every baby should have a babysitter like Carl!

I would call this my daughters first favorite book. No words, a dog takes care of a baby all day while the mom is gone. hilarious. SHe loved it when he has the baby in his mouth by his clothes carrying him downstairs!

With minimal words and illustrations that tell all, the undeniable love and devotion of a dog and his human baby is evident in their secret adventures as a team! Beautiful expression of the love of dogs and their human siblings!

This book is a fun one for teaching dialogue. Students can write what they think the characters are saying. Very creative responses!

Without a single word, this book tells a huge story. It is about one day in the life of a dog that is left to babysit.

Good Dog Carl is my grandson's all-time favorite of all the books we read. He never tires of it and all the other Carl books, as well. I don't think he realizes I am actually teling the story from the marvelous illustrations. He loves it so much he wanted to have Carl at his birthday party. Fortunately, we have our own Rotweiler, Hansel, who was able to attend.

My brother has his own rotweiler so this is the book "he" always gets for new babies. (I buy it and make him sign it) it is a cute picture book... there are no words throughout the book - fair warning! But the pictures are engaging and easy to bable on about. My neice talks more through this book than the other ones she has memorized because there are no words! I love Carl! I wish my brother's dog was as trusting as Carl is!!!

Alexandra Day's Carl series has been amazing for years - the cardboard versions were VERY loved by my children (now teens) much like a certain stuffed animal in another children's book - but Carl is always there to rescue the baby, take care of the baby, and the "baby" who "reads" the story usually changes much of their "story" (there tend to be VERY few words at the beginning and end - it's all GLORIOUS paintings) - I am proud to give her cardboard books to the newest little one in my life, baby Mae :0) xoxo YaYa

Alexandra Day's illustrations are lovely and evocative. We started reading these books when my daughter was about the same age as Madeliene, the baby in the books. It was a joy to share these books with my child as we snuggled in bed with three or four dogs at our feet. Every child should know Carl.

All of Alexandra Day's "Carl" books are beautifully illustrated and tell a story through pictures. My children and now my grandchildren started learning to read through telling me (and any other adult who would sit down for a minute) the story of Carl and Baby's adventures. Having had us show them once how to look at the pictures and tell the story, they all discovered they loved reading.

An old-time 'dog' book in the tradition of the Little Rascals where an older brother is placed in charge of watching his little brother but instead introduces him to all kinds of fun, that is harmless, but unacceptable by their mom. Great fun for all kids.
