Children's Literature
Dotty, an endearing puppy, is having trouble sleeping in her new home. She tosses and turns and snuggles with a toy, but nothing seems to work. Soon, her howling wakes up nearby friends like Pip the Mouse, Susie the Bird, Whiskers the Rabbit and Tommy the Tortoise, who all share their tricks for getting to sleep. But alas, counting stars, getting drinks, hiding under her blanket and turning on the light do not help the young puppy. Finally, Tommy discovers a solution—Dotty needs to sleep with all of her new friends in her new house. Snuggled close together and with the safety of friendship, Dotty falls asleep. This delightful book is sure to be a favorite with young children. Its simple themes of friendship and dealing with change combine with colorful, heartwarming illustrations to produce a picture book that can be enjoyed over and over. 2001, Tiger Tales, $14.95. Ages 3 to 5. Reviewer:Leah Hanson

I've been reading this to my child since he was born. He LOVES IT. We have a dalmatian (named Dottie) and he loves reading it. He has horrible eyesight which we didn't know until he was 12 M, but I think he always liked this book because of the colors and contrast and that he knew who "Dotty" was. Very cute and sweet story. I would love more "Dotty" stories!!!!

I bought this book because it was on sale and my daughter loves dogs and boy what a treasure I found in this book. My husband reads this book to my daughter at bedtime each night and my daughter loves it. There is a little ladybug hidden on each page, and my daughter delights in trying to find it. The drawings are cute and the story is a warm-hearted one. I would definitely reccommend this book to anyone.

This refreshingly illustrated story about a puppy trying to get to sleep in her new home includes enjoyable repetition and play-along (such as making the sounds of the animals). The content is not quite perfect -- it could have been made a little more identifiable to the reader -- but it has a warm and good 'night' ending, which is always useful when putting your toddler to bed.
