Hey, Kids! God has a special message for you... So... let's peek into the story- "No, Grandma," pleaded Ezzie. "Not that kind of story... not about earthquakes, please!" "But, Ezzie, what if my story has dogs in it. Would that set your mind at ease?" "Yeah, Ezzie!" blurted Marcos. "You love dogs! Would that be okay with you?" "Well, maybe if there are dogs in it," said Ezzie. "And more than a few." "Then snuggle up, my punkins!" exclaimed Grandma Joy. "Have I got a story for you!"

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Hey, There's a Dog on My Feet! by Lyn D. Nielsen is an adorable storybook with a good message for children. Ezzie, the oldest of three children, asks his grandmother to tell them a story. He does not want a story about earthquakes, but Grandmother tells him that she will make the story more interesting by having dogs in it. So the three kids, Ezzie, Marcos, and Cars, snuggle up to their grandmother to listen to the story. The story conveys a beautiful message of how God loves everyone and never gives up on anyone, even during bad times. And the comparisons of the traits of dogs with that of God makes it even more charming. I found the concept extremely useful to kids and the author's way of conveying it is also delightful. The illustrations are excellent, full of energy and life, and give a good pace and movement to the scenes. They also breathe life into all the characters. The dogs in the story are also as charming as the kids, Ezzie, Marcos, and Cars. The book is an excellent bedtime storybook and parents and grandparents can have it in their personal collection to tell their kids and grandkids about God and His presence in everyone's lives. It can also be used for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Stories like this with a message and a concept are ideal for children as they understand the concept and the message better when narrated with the help of a story and colorful illustrations.
