This story, is the first in a 12 part series, chronicling aspects of the life of Genesis, a precocious five year old girl growing up on the island of Antigua.
'Wash the Dog' is the introduction to Genesis, who spends a lovely afternoon with her cousin Jordan, tackling the task of getting the stinky family dog clean. It is a whimsical, catchy story that rhymes, fun for children to read out loud and very easy to remember. The illustrations, are done beautifully by a local Antiguan artist named Anson Henry, who captures the very essence of the words, written by Tameka. They go hand in hand to tell a very simple tale, that will cause children to either go and wash their own family pet (whatever it may be), or encourage those who have none, to ask their parents to get them one, just because of how much fun it seems to have a pet,through the eyes of Genesis.
