Kevin Henkes is an amazing author and partnering up with Yaccarino's illustrations make this book a wonderful read for you and your child. Your child will delight and laugh at the funny lines and the things that are said and done by the family and the dogs and the illustrations are simple, pure and allow your mind to bond with the story and the colors. I highly recommend this for any family, but especially a family with a dog or dogs.
This book is really great. I am always searching for something I can read to my young crowd. Preschool children really seem to enjoy this book as well as I do. It is really difficult to find books that can be read to such young children due to their attention span. This book is short and sweet, but also has the necessary rythmic sounds that is important for children to learn to read. Overall I think this book is a great buy.
