Nothing but a Dog based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Although Nothing But a Dog is a children's book, its audience is much wider. If you have ever really wanted, wished and begged for a dog this book is for you. In this vibrant picture book, Bobbi Katz artfully captures the internal pang that comes from a child's deep yearning for a loving pet. Wistful text and colorful illustrations come together for a happy ending and a celebration of wishes come true. As a second grade teacher and mother of a dog-adoring daughter, I think this book is a winner. Nothing But a Dog is a "must-have" for dog-lovers of all ages and a great gift for those who are anticipating the arrival of a puppy.
Every time I revisit this book, I am moved all over again. The balance between Katz's words and Manning's imagery is sublime: so expressive, pitch-perfect, and deeply felt. This book will help readers connect with their desires, offering valuable time for reflection and the experience of early appreciation and gratitude for the time when dreams are fulfilled.
