Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-This title is redundant and uninteresting. Each spread begins with "Walk the dog, walk the dog"-and ends with two repetitive words such as "lick, lick" or "jump, jump." The large pictures of 26 dogs in alphabetical order are colorful and lively enough, but there isn't enough story to hold children's interest. Kathy Darling's ABC Dogs (Walker, 1997) uses photos of canines and large letters to present the same concepts. Walk the Dog doesn't work as an alphabet book as the initial letters are never shown, and the pictures of the animals aren't true enough to their species to be useful for identification.-Janet M. Bair, Trumbull Library, CT Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Kirkus Reviews
From the oversize pawprints on the grassy-green endpapers to the parade of pups between the covers, this alphabetic array of popular pooches will have young readers howling, barking, and growling for a dog of their own. Brilliantly colored collages capture the antics of 26 exuberant canines, including everything from an Airedale to a Zwergpinscher, as they indulge in some of their favorite activities. Moving fluidly from one double-page spread to the next, a steady stream of dogs "meet and greet" one another. A small hound dog bravely sniffs the muzzle of a giant Irish Wolfhound, a Pug, and a Queensland Heeler go nose to nose; and a Rottweiler growls defiantly at the reader. A sentence or two about each breed provides curious readers with simple factual information (and pronunciations). Whether walking, running, sniffing, licking, jumping, digging, or chasing, these happy-go-lucky four-footed friends exemplify all the alluring traits that qualify them for the title of man's (and kids') best friend. (Picture book. 2-5). . . Bauer, Steven A CAT OF A DIFFERENT COLOR Illus. by Tim Raglin Delacorte (197 pp.) Jun. 2000

    A Howling Success

    In my first grade classroom, Walking the Dog was recently introduced by a seven year old who had selected this book from thousands at a public library. The student's animated presentation and enjoyment of successful reading was applauded by his peers. Walking the Dog is now a highly desired checkout at our local library, and has become a frequent request to be added to our school library. I am sure Walking the Dog will be on many 4 to 7 year olds' Christmas wish lists.
