Marvelous Monday

Smick! by Doreen Cronin, illustrated by Juana Medina is quite minimalist.  Enter Smick, a lovable dog.  Smick likes to go after a stick. Then Smick meets a chick. This sweet, rhyming story about a dog, a stick, and a chick is just right for the toddler and three year-old set.  The digital art is accompanied by photograph of a stick and a flower petal that is the chick.  It's very unique and endearing.  It's one of those characters, like Pigeon, that relates a lot of character and charm with just a few artist's touches. 
I'll use this in my Toddlerpalooza, a guided play time for toddlers and their caregivers, and in preschool Storytime.
