A greyhound, a groundhog by Emily Jenkins; illustrated by Chris Appelhans. 32 p. New York : Schwartz & Wade Books, 2017. ISBN 0553498053. Hardcover.
This picture book has simple watercolour and pencil illustrations depicting the fun a greyhound and groundhog had together. Many of the greyhound's body positions would be recognised by those familiar with the breed. It is clear from both animals' happy facial expressions that they enjoyed each other's company. There is not too much text, which is of good size for children to read. Words are repetitive with many sounding the same. Some text curves with the flowing illustrations. A greyhound, a groundhog is an excellent read-aloud that would be enjoyed again and again. ( )

This is a good book about friendship and differences. It has great watercolor artwork, and the text is repetitive and only changes slightly on every page. This helps children comprehend what's going on.

A seemingly odd pair have a wild good time running through nature.

I appreciated they rhyming/ repetitive aspect to the book. For a young reader the repetition allows for them to make the dialectic distinction between words.
