Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Yates’ bibliophile star of Dog Loves Books (2010) is back, this time in an ode to drawing. When Dog receives a blank book from his aunt Dora, he is initially unsure of its purpose—luckily there’s a note of explanation, and Dog immediately pulls out his pens, pencils, and brushes and sets to work. As with the best artwork, Dog’s efforts are transformative: the door he draws opens, and he steps through it. There, he draws a stickman (kids will relate), and they doodle together. When the page is brimming over with stars and curlicues, they turn the page to a blank one and create new friends—a pink owl, a striped duck, and a more traditional-looking orange crab. The quintet draw themselves into adventures until the duck creates something “that spoils everything,” and they need to find their way out of the sketchbook. Dog, with his floppy ears and irrepressible love of books and creativity, is a charmer, and little kids will find his enthusiasm inspiring. Storytime and activity possibilities abound. Grades K-3. --Ann Kelley --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Meet the new love of my life: Dog! Dog Loves Drawing by Louise Yates is the new favorite book in our home. And that is really saying something because we read a ton of books. The first time we snuggled-up to read this charming book the kiddos oohed and aahed, giggled and cheered. We ended with, "That was a good book! Can we read it again!" My daughter has carried around this book (including sleeping with it) for two weeks solid.

Dog's Aunt Dora sends him a sketchbook and "Dog knew exactly what to do. . . ." He drew a door and then a stickman. Next, they DOODLE together because that's the best way to come up with good ideas. They quickly color-up some new friends and soon they are spilling onto the next page. They drift in and out of pages and through colors of adventure. Before long Dog has to dash out to buy some more paper.

A dare you to read this book without being inspired to doodle yourself up a story! Perfect for sparking story telling, writing and illustrating.

Both my son (7) and daughter (5) love this book. After reading it, my daughter decided to make her own drawing with the characters. She started with a door (of course!)

I really enjoy the development of art work in the book. It starts with the basics and moves through greater complexity, all in story form.

It's great. The first time I read Dog Loves Drawing to my 5-year-old, he was transfixed from start to finish, and then said, "read it again." And then again. And then he brought it to school for sharing time. We've read it at bedtime, not once each bedtime but twice or three times. He said he loves the pictures even more than the words, and he follows the story each part of the picture tells. I like the words and their rhythm, I like the story and the allusions to Harold & the Purple Crayon, and the pictures keep me entertained through the many, many times I have read this aloud.

A excellent read for children between 2 and 6 I would say. A good story which makes you want to get the pens and paints out and encourage art work with a child. Delightful
