Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tracy Defina
Tiny is a not so tiny dog. He's bigger than a bike and too big for the tub. So, when it's time for Tiny's bath, the pool will have to do. This simple, yet humorous story will delight young readers. Brief sentences and repetition provide for successful reading. Rich Davis's revealing illustrations guide readers as they seek visual clues. This book is packed with action and the relationship between child and dog is warm and familiar. Level 1.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-A small boy wearing baggy shorts, a sideways baseball cap, and round glasses describes his dog, Tiny: "He is bigger than a bike. He is bigger than a chair. He is bigger than I am!" Since Tiny likes dirt, he needs a bath, but the pail is too small and so is the bathtub. The pool is the perfect solution. After Tiny is clean, he decides that playing in the mud is more fun, and both the dog and the boy end up back in the pool. This very beginning-level reader is predictable from start to finish. It is the full-color illustrations, which fill the double-page spreads, that give the story its charm. While this book is not memorable, it is a serviceable addition to easy-reader collections.-Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
All too often, books for the least sophisticated beginning readers...consist of meaningless stories filled with patterned vocabulary. Eager to practice their new skill, children will pronounce each word but fail to develop and awareness of reading's great pleasures. On a shelf above such pedantic works sits Tiny's Bath
The Horn Book Magazine
Kirkus Reviews
In this Easy-to-Read entry is a dog large enough to chase Clifford the big red dog right out of town. Tiny is a dog who is the exact opposite of what his name implies. When he gets dirty, his owner—a small boy—has to search to find a receptacle big enough to scrub him down. A pail, the sink, and even the bathtub are dwarfed by the presence of this giant hound; only the little boy's wading pool will do. The child gets Tiny washed, only to be dirtied himself when his pooch discovers a new mud puddle to play in. Both boy and dog come clean in the end. Davis's playful illustrations romp alongside the beginning reader text, using an easy, loping giganticism to portray this big pet's appeal. (Picture book. 5-7) .
