    One thought on “Go Track a Yak!”

    1. Not quite my kind of book. The illustrations were not my favorite. The text in the story isn't up my alley for reading aloud in storytime. And the story felt like it was a bit of a fairy tale retelling of some sort, but really, really weird. I'll just put on display for Y.

    2. This would be a fun one for the kids to repeat the different sounds that were being presented in the book. It is also a story of finding the Yak, so maybe a teacher could go into a lesson about maps and how it might have helped to find the yak. What do maps look like? what do we use them for?

    3. look- i like weird books, but this was just not my kind of weird's like a kid's book by an author who was onme kind of mind-altering substancewhich again, isn't necessarily a bad thingbut not my jam, nor my child's

    4. Personally, I didn't care for this book at all. My son is almost 3 yoa and I feel that the content and illustrations are too dark for his age. The crone uses phrases such as, "Stop blubbering," "You're such a baby," and "Come on, crybaby." Not exactly things I want my toddler picking up and repeating to me, another adult, or another child. I assume that this is based on an Eastern European folklore. I like fairy tales and folklore - including the originals - but I'm an adult who can handle the o [...]

    5. The cover and title intrigued me. I wanted to know what the yak was going to do in the story, so I plucked the book from the shelf and read it. It was a fairly amusing tale. The pictures were over the top and cartoonish, but I think children and adults would enjoy them, though they weren't my particular favorite.*Taken from my book reviews blog: reviewsatmse/2012

    6. Go Track a Yak is a book that takes place in Russia I believe. Is about a family needing food. When a old crone. comes and tells the family what they need to do to get food. So the adventure begins.The art is very interesting and cool. The details are very precise and show great ideas of what the the family looks like and the animals that they find.

    7. A couple of bumbling parents with a hungry baby seek help from a tricky little witch, but it is a sweet black-eyed yak who really helps them to live happily ever after.

    8. An old crone tricks a family who are trying to find a way to stop their baby from crying. Yak hunting ensues.Perfect for reading aloud, lots of dialogue and drama to ham it up with.

    9. This is one of the cutest children's books ever! My kids absolutely LOVE this book. We check it out from the library over and over and over! It is great! Must be read with lots of enthusiasm!
