Word Mender Series - The Bark Park

All Word Menders books come with flashcards and a handy pocket for storage.

"We wanted to go in and play, but Grumpy Pete
wouldn't let us stay!"

The Bark Park in town is only for dogs, but other pets want to play, too! No matter how hard they try, these animal friends just can't get past Gatekeeper Pete who insists, "If you do not bark, you aren't allowed into my park!" But, with some quick thinking, and a friend or two to lend a hand, the animals find a place where everyone is welcome.


  • Even before I read the last page, my daughter was begging me to "read it again, Mommy!"
  • Rich vocabulary, strong rhythm and rhyme, and opportunities for children to chime in on every page.
  • Everything you could want in a quality children's book. It earns an A+ from this SLP!
  •  What a gem. Targets talking, reading, learning, and laughter.
  • FABULOUS illustrations by Gary Morgan.

5.0 out of 5 stars 
My daughters favorite book!
My 2 year old daughter just loves this book. I have found her many times sitting down and "reading" this book by herself. It has really helped with her speech. She loves pulling out the cards and putting them back. She doesn't even realize she's learning. It's just pure fun for her.
