Dozens of Doughnuts -- Perfect Picture Book Friday

Title: Dozens of Doughnuts

Author: Carrie Finison

Illustrator: Brianne Farley

Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 2020

Synopsis: "A generous but increasingly put-upon bear makes batch after batch of doughnuts for her woodland friends without saving any for herself."

Ages: 3 - 8

Themes: Doughnuts, Sharing, Friendship

Opening Lines: Early one morning, as autumn leaves scatter. LouAnn's busy stirring a big bowl of batter. She'll eat some sweet treats, then, warm and well-fed, she'll sleep away winter tucked tight in her bed.

Why I love this book:

A lot of alliteration.

Bouncy rhythm and lovely rhyme. Broken up with a Ding-dong that kids are sure to in on saying.

This is such a fun and sweet picture book. The illustrations are bright and cheerful, and all the animal characters are adorable. How can you go wrong with Animals and doughnuts?

Carrie Finison Reads her book:

Munch this one up!
