Come. Sit. Stay. I want to tell you a story. I think you'll like it. It's about a TREAT and a good dog, a very good dog who wanted to go play. But his friend was busy....
THE BEDTIME BOOK FOR DOGS is a charming story about a dog who decides that he'd rather walk to the park by himself than wait for his human companion-and discovers that all of his usual activities aren't as much fun without a good friend to share them with.

I thoroughly enjoyed this little book and so did my two dogs. It is full of words they both knew, especially the "T" word: Treat! I love the artwork and the little story that goes with it. This would make a cute gift for any dog lover. It's also a perfect book to share with children and anyone else in the family. What a delightful idea!

My first children's book to review! And it's a new family favorite. I didn't read it myself, I took it with us for our first summer story time before bed. The boys LOVED it. In fact Ivan (2 1/2 yrs old) has insisted I read it about a dozen times in the first 3 days we have had it. I'd say that makes it a hit. My 5 yr old gets mad if he misses a reading of it.
The pictures are simply drawn and colored and this gives me a sense of simplicity and safety...comforting. I could look at them for ages. The story is also quite simply written, making it a great book to start reading with as well as being great for the little ones who won't sit for long.
And finally it has a touch of humor. There's a scene at the park when the dog is doing "his business" behind a bush, the boys recognize that position because we have a dog, and the squirrel in the tree is covering his eyes...the boys are rolling on the floor...honestly we all found that page gigglicious.
So yes - go buy this book for the child in your life. And if I can have a bit of a soapbox time here, instead of buying a $3 card the child can't read and honestly won't get the sentiment, buy them a book and sign the cover for them. It will follow them much longer and serve a better purpose. Hint, hint, this book would be a great birthday card!

Love this book! It's a fun and quirky way to celebrate and spend time with the pets in your life, and is also a must-have for kids. Full of fun pictures and simple words for young kids and pups alike to learn and understand, this book is definitely on my good list.
This also serves as a great educational tool: kiddos who read to their pets learn to read 30% faster than kids who read solely to their human friends (according to a cool study done in Cali).
