Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amy McMillan
Dogs are known as man's best friend for a reason. They are loyal, loving, and come in so many shapes and sizes it is almost impossible not to find one that appeals to you. They can be helpful or a nuisance, shy or famous movie stars. They keep your feet warm when it is cold outside, fetch things for you or cover everything with muddy paw prints. Some are so large they are almost as big as you are while some are so small they will fit in a lady's purse. But most of all dogs can love you. Simple one to three sentence rhymes fill each spread noting the good and bad, silly and obvious traits of a variety of dogs. The illustrations are soft and playful highlighting various breeds and mixtures so that children will easily recognize at least one or two that look familiar. This book would make a fun read-aloud for a pre-school group or a mini-lesson on using adjectives and descriptions in writing for an older group. Reviewer: Amy McMillan
Kirkus Reviews

A cornucopia of canines!

There are many kinds of dogs in the world, and this cheerful collection of furry, frolicsome, tail-wagging critters endeavors to show them all. The concentration is on the many attributes of dogs, rather than breeds. Rhymed text describes different aspects of our four-legged friends: "Country dogs. / City dogs. / Itty-bitty pretty dogs. // Shy dogs. / Bold dogs. / Won't-do-as-they're-told dogs." Vivid and colorful illustrations show doe-eyed puppies and adult dogs of different breeds from head to tail and back again, including various elements of their behavior, size, appearance, value and affection for those they love. As with Hubbell's earlier book on cats, both the obvious and more elusive are covered here (I Like Cats, illustrated by Pamela Paparone, 2003). Youngsters will delight in the gentle humor and join in the catchy tempo with descriptive rhymes of their own. Good for encouraging children to notice details and characteristics, this straightforward selection is a celebration of all things canine and a fine read-aloud in both home and school or library settings.

Any child who loves dogs is in for a real treat. (Picture book. 2-5)

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—An assortment of lovable-looking pooches is pictured in this charming ode to man's best friend. In perfect rhyme, Hubbell describes the canines by their characteristics rather than breeds: shaggy, waggy, thin, saggy, shy, bold, pretty, puppies, full-grown, and more. Next she offers a litany of the things dogs are good at doing, such as finding a lost ball, going for walks, digging up bones, and comforting their owners when they feel sick. Wu's detailed illustrations drawn with colored pencil over acrylic vividly depict the different textures of each animal's fur as it engages in typical doggie pastimes. Children who love animals will adore this fetching book.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT
