Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—A boy strolls down a street with a tasty doughnut tied to his belt. The goody, which trails enticingly behind him, attracts a hen that "…fancied herself a crumb of this thing." Soon they're joined by a cat, a dog, a little girl, and finally her costumed friends, who've been putting on a play. Before long, the doughnut parade has grown to include figures real (farm animals, firemen) and imagined (Mother Goose characters and "cloud catchers" with large nets). Then the boy's unexpected move results in a quiet conclusion. The poetic text reads well aloud ("And so followed Mabel, their Saturday sitter,/And Adelaide Bead, who'd been doing her hair"), and the watercolor figures are fluid and dynamic. However, the story lacks the spark and the inner logic of the most inspired silliness. Bond is a talented author/illustrator, but this is not her best effort.—Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL

My daughter will not go to bed until we have purused every page of this wonderful book and spotted each character along the way. It's a lovely read aloud.

Format: Hardcover
Rebecca Bond's THE GREAT DOUGHNUT PARADE tells of small Billy, who has a doughnut tied to his belt and finds himself leading a parade as a result. With its rollicking rhyme and fun paintings, it's a cheerful, fun easy read for beginning picturebook enthusiasts.
