    Simply delightful!

    Although I bought this as a birthday gift for our granddaughter who is a total dog lover, I enjoyed the story and photos myself and am looking forward to her reaction when she reads it in August (if I can wait that long to give it to her!).

    I love STAY and kids do too!

    STAY is such a wonderful story; the photographs are so engaging; and the colors are so rich and strong. I think the design is very well done, and makes the book very adaptable for a broad age range of young children. I work with young children with special needs, and I especially like having the text in an outlined block, particularly for children with visual perception issues or learning disabilities that can affect their ability to differentiate visual information on a page. It also allows for the photos to be the focus of the book for younger children, and creates the opportunity for a parent, teacher, or adult reader to guide the child to "read" and interpret the photos, while paraphrasing the text. The book also is a great way to present differentiation within a category - dogs - for children who are cognitively ready for that.

    I've used it with a number of children between 2-1/2 and 3-1/2 years old. I’ve also used it in a preschool class of typically developing children where I support the mainstreaming of a little girl with special needs. The story is rich and complex, and offers an excellent, true-life, narrative experience for kindergarteners and first graders as well. All the children loved STAY and wanted to read it again. As one little boy, whose not quite three, closed the book, we looked at the back cover, naming each of the dogs. He then turned the book over and said, "More dogs!"
