I was read this book as a kid, and loved it! I'm thrilled to pass it on to my nephew! The illustrations are engaging, and there is great detail on every page to look at! Highly recommend this to your pre-school through first grade level child!

Harry is a dog who hates baths and loves getting dirty, so he runs away when his owner tries to give him a bath. It is only when he comes back so dirty that his owner doesn't recognize him that he realizes that being dirty is not such a great thing.

Zion, G., & Graham, M. B. (1984). Harry, the dirty dog. New York: Harper Collins. (Original work published 1956).Age: 2 to 4 years oldHarry is a clever dog that hates taking a bath. One day, when he hears the sound of the water running in the tub, he decides to hide the scrubbing brush. He buries it in the backyard and runs away from home. As the day goes by, Harry gets himself in many situations, all of them adding to a thick layer of dirt that turns the white dog with black spots into a black dog with white spots. It starts to get late; Harry gets hungry and tired, so he makes him way back home. His family, however, does not recognize him because he is so dirty. Harry digs the brush out the hole, runs upstairs to the bathroom, and presents the family with the brush. The kids give Harry a bath, and they finally recognize him! Harry goes to bed clean and Harry, dreaming of all the adventures of the day.Many children will identify with Harry, the dirty dog. Bath time can be a struggle, and many children would prefer to run away from home than face a soapy bath. But Harry has to face the consequences of his actions, and he finally gives in to a much needed bath. The plot is easy to follow, and the language is very accessible to younger children. The illustrations, in black, white, orange, and green, are very stylized, with beady-eyed people and smiling dogs populating the big, buzzing city. Younger children will love to follow Harry as he gets dirtier and dirtier, and they will be even happier when Harry gets reunited with his family.

The combination of text and illustration create a wonderful children's picture book. I love how Harry burries the scrubbing brush and runs away to avoid a bath. I appreciate this book as a former dog owner and trying to give the dog a bath. She would always hide. I can also relate to this book when I try to get my son in the tub.

The book was one of my absolute favorites as a kid, so it tickles me to no end that my three-year-old adores it as much as I did.

This is a great book for kids! My 2 year old loves dogs and really enjoys this book. We got the card board book which is great for her age.

My grandson is two and listen intently....starting to get the dirty dog is Harry. He gets a little concerned when Harry leaves home. But at the end he likes the bath and homecoming. Probably better suited for 4 to 5 year old.

A dog isn't recognized after becoming so dirty since he hates baths. A good metaphor for a child who is bad since his mom and dad may not recognize him/her from his/her behavior. A very funny book that prooves a point to kids.

Our son loves this book. He keeps turning the page to see the dog on each page and my husband loves to read it to him as it's one of the few board books we've found with a good story. It's a good length for bedtime.

I was very disappointed when I received my order of what is advertised as a hardcover book. What I received is a board book. This should be advertised as a board book. I would not have ordered it had I known what I was getting.
