Overview

The clumsy canine star of Dog's Colorful Day is back in a picture-book adventure that will have children barking, braying, chirping, and hooting with laughter.

From the moment he hears his first wake-up birdcall, Dog is off on a day full of interesting, irresistible noises. He makes many noisy friends-a rooster and a donkey, cows and pigs-and soon his lopsided ears are full of silly animal sounds too melodious to just listen to-Dog must imitate them as well!

With the fresh, brilliantly colored art that gives her books such perfect preschool appeal, Emma Dodd offers another eye-catching and raucous read-aloud hit, starring the irrepressible and charming Dog.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The capering canine from Dog's Colorful Day (see p. 70) returns in another learning adventure for the preschool set, Dog's Noisy Day: A Story to Read Aloud by Emma Dodd. This time Dog's day brims with onomatopoeic sounds from the "grrrr!" of his stomach to the "cock-a-doodle-dooooo!" of the rooster on a nearby farm. Each noise appears in bold capital letters and exclamation points against a bright, solid backdrop filled with sunny-faced cartoon animals.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Dog's third adventure takes him around a barnyard to meet the noisy animals that live there. The adorable pup wakes with a yawn, encounters a songbird outside his window, and becomes excited by the strange sounds he hears: "`COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO!' A rooster crows to wake up the neighboring farm. It certainly works on Dog!- Dog tries to crow like the rooster. `WOOFA, WOOFLE, WOO!'" Children will need little encouragement to make each sound as they enjoy this lively, well-paced story. The simple, digitally enhanced cartoons are done in vivid colors and the animals are all wonderfully expressive. Dog's Noisy Day is perfect to read aloud to a group of any size. Storytime will never sound the same again.-Alison Grant, West Bloomfield Township Public Library, MI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Read aloud, yes, but Dodd's tour of the farmyard, conducted by her friendly mutt who first taught colors and the alphabet (Dog's Colorful Day, 2001; Dog's ABC, 2002), is more a woof-quack-oink-baaa-moo-cock-a-doodle-doo aloud. Pegged for preschoolers, the book becomes a merry cacophony that welcomes young listeners to become active participants. "Dog is just waking up. Hello, Dog! He makes his morning noise. YAWN!" Meantime, birds are twittering outside the window, the cat wants to play chase, and Dog is off on his adventure. "WOOF! WOOF!" He sashays about the grounds, mucking with the pigs, swimming with the ducks, catching a dognap in the wildflowers, and when he gets buzzed by an owl-no simple hoot here, but a tweet-a-woo-Dog knows it's time to head home, chow down, and grab another, longer snooze. A story as gentle as a lamb, with loopy good-time characters-the type that have both eyes on one side of their head-but tricked out in high-saturation, energetic colors that light a fire under all the hee-haws and honks. (Picture book. 2-5)
