Personal Response:This is a cute book, but there isn't much to it. It really doesn't have a plot, and the entire book is about describing dogs. This book would be good paired with a more substantial book.Classroom/Library uses:This book doesn't deal with "multiculturalism" per se, however, this book does talk about diversity in terms of dogs. At the Christian school I work at, we might start out a conversaton something like this, "Look at all the different types of dogs God created." From there, I would go on to question the students about other areas in which we see diversity

'I love dogs...' and a detailed and splendidly illustrated list of dogs followed, contrasted by appearance or personality - stripy dogs and spotty dogs, stroppy dogs and soppy dogs. Liam especially loves the endpapers with its labelled dog breeds. He's surprised more than one owner at the dog park by shouting out 'Chinese crested' and 'Dachshund' at appropriate times.
