Overview

It's picture day at the dog park. But before the first photo can be taken, an exuberant pack of pups needs a bit of grooming. So they’re off to Shampoodle, the local pet salon, where the eager dogs simply cannot sit still. And when some curious cats stop by, things go from messy to mayhem. Shampoodle is perfect for animal lovers and children who are just starting to read on their own, taking their cues from lively art and bubbly, rhymed text.

Step 2 Readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell simple stories. For children who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It is picture day at the park for the pups, so off they go for grooming. It is just like any adult salon, with shampooing, hairdryers blowing, curlers, and special cuts, but the added attraction here is the chaos caused by the appearance of a couple of cats. The shop is in turmoil, but after the cats are chased away the dogs are pooped and settle down for their grooming. Finally, everything is finished, and they head out for the picture taking. Another mishap lies in wait, though. Oh, what a mess. What will the final outcome be? Enjoy the picture on the final page and see for yourself. The cover illustration shows a smiling pup with his hair piled high in shampoo. The illustrations throughout are filled with action and humor, and the text just flows along at a pace that will keep readers turning the pages. There is a note at the beginning addressed to parents that describes the series and the levels. This particular title is a Step 2 book in the "Step into Reading" series, which means that it is targeted to kids reading with help. It uses basic vocabulary and short sentences.
