Reading/Interest Level: Toddler, Preschool
Author: Stephanie Meyers
Publisher: Flowerpot Press
From the Animal Lovers series comes this adorable book of incredibly cute canines. Each turn of the page features a high-definition photo of a dog with a short caption—“Spotted Dog,” “Happy Dog,” “Silly Dog,” etc. Their poses and expressions are as varied as their breeds.
The author’s choice of photos and captions are perfect. The pictures seem to highlight the most endearing aspects of dogs. The descriptors are right at the level of toddlers and preschoolers—some that are well-known (dirty, happy), and others that will stretch their vocabulary (curious, shy). Bright backgrounds and colorful text also capture the attention of readers and promote its energetic, happy-go-lucky spirit. This board book is sturdily built to withstand the handling that it will surely receive by excited young dog lovers.
