Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Dressing for the day becomes a game as a little boy follows his morning ritual with a beloved pet. It's Black Dog's turn first, beginning with underwear. Young readers may identify with the problems in the process-"Up, Black Dog. It's too hard to dress you when you're lying down." The willing pup lovingly cooperates for each succeeding layer of clothing until the boy surprises him and dons his own outfit for the day-a black dog costume. Gouache illustrations show uncluttered drawings of the boy and his dog as they play in his bedroom. Stripes, polka dots, and geometric patterns add interest to the simple figures outlined in black. Text placement and division give new readers simple words with ample visual clues. This small book not only names articles of clothing, but also engages children in a game of surprise and pretend that they will find appealing.

From Booklist

PreS-K. A little boy puts his underpants, shirt, sweater, pants, socks, and jacket on his dog, then dresses himself in a dog costume. In the first-person text, the boy talks to Black Dog, cajoling his affectionate canine pal into playing along. Young children will enjoy the visual joke of a dog being dressed as well as the boy's short, good-natured monologue. Pleasing in their clarity and simplicity, the illustrations feature black line drawings brightened with gouache in unusual color combinations. Engaging and on target. Carolyn Phelan

This is a great book. My daughter loves it and remembered all the words and reads it to her little brother. Its very short and a easy read. Surly a keeper in our house for her younger brother when he is old enough. I wish she wrote more or a series on this one.
