More About the Author

John Schindel is the author of the 14-book BUSY series, featuring domestic animal and wildlife photographs from some of the world's best photographers. The series debuted with BUSY PENGUINS (2000), an immediate hit with critics, librarians, booksellers, parents and kids who adored the rhyme "penguin pooping, penguins drooping."

John searched worldwide for the best photographs to include in the series, and then selected the best combination of photographs and rhymes. One photographer sent him over 2500 pictures to review; the book needed only 19. Making photo-illustrated books, John combines his immense joy of looking at high-quality images with his love of creating books for babies and toddlers.

In addition to the BUSY series, John has authored seven illustrated picture books for children 4 - 8 years old. He is currently (2014) working on a new photo-book project to be published Spring 2015. He lives in the San Francisco bay area.

My 12 month old loves this book. We read it often and he studies the pictures. I love the simple rhymes and interesting photographs--especailly "doggy diving." We'll be reading this one for a while.

Great photos and cute rhymes make this a perfect book for our son, especially because he shares his home with two dogs and is exposed to many more at dog agility shows.

I love this book as well as many others of the series. I have often given these books to new parents and everyone raves about them. Never seen a kid not respond to the book. Incredibly cute.

John Schindel has truly outdone himself with this poignant and profound literary masterpiece! His text is descriptive, poetic and profound - chronicling the activities of his eventful and engaged K-9 subjects. The photography of Beverly Sparks compliments Schindel's unparalleled words of wit and insight as a welcome added bonus to this must-have page-turner! What a book!!

What more can I say? This is a wonderful book -- especially for those who love dogs -- John captures not only their lovely, quirky, individual expressions, but their spirits as well...

I never write reviews for things on Amazon but I just thought I would say that this is by far my 9 month old's favorite book. He is just at the beginning of really wanting to read with us and having clear favorites with books holding his attention longer than others and this is his absolute favorite. It is the first book to even make him laugh. So cute! Great photos. I guess it helps that his favorite member of our family is our dog :)

Our 9 month old son is currently in LOVE with anything dog related. So, when we opened this book, he got SUPER excited. He will just sit and giggle with the book on his own. We love it. (It also makes me want a dog...)

We have two Golden Retrievers and a 7-month-old baby girl. I love this book, and so does my daughter. The photography is great, and thanks to her furry brother and sister, she is absolutely delighted by pictures of dogs. I think even a baby without her own dogs would enjoy the great pictures (they show dogs doing different things from fun perspectives, like a dog's eyes peeking through leaves or a dog swimming underwater). It's nice to have a little variety and have some books that have all photography instead of all illustrations like most children's books.
