Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This follow-up to Cat Poems (2005) captures the pleasure and occasional problems that come with man's best friend. The rhythmic poetry introduces kids to "Oodles of Poodles," gives them a chuckle in "Washing the Dog," and shows them how much dogs look like their owners in "Almost Human." Deeper issues are tackled in a poem about a rescued greyhound (though young readers may not understand the idea of rescue dog), and "Wolf Dog" looks back at the time when canines were becoming socialized. The rhyme scheme is sometimes unrelentingly uncomplicated, but there's lots of humor packed in the poems, and most dog owners will find something to remind them of their own pets. The cartoon-style watercolor art has a bounce all its own; kids will want to draw their own dogs wagging their tails, jumping on beds, and giving great slobbering kisses. Cooper, Ilene

Review

"The poems are written in a casual, humorous style that children will enjoy." --Kirkus Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Dog Poems is a children's picturebook featuring whimsical rhyming poems by Emmy-winning author Dave Crawley, all about different breeds of man's best friend. The simple, playful illustrations by Tamara Petrosino add a perfectly fun-filled touch to this wonderful poetry collection for young dog lovers. "Basset": The saggy baggy Basset hound / has ears that nearly touch the ground, / with mournful eyes and wrinkled skin / that hangs below his droopy chin. // But Basset has a clever snout. / His nose will always sniff you out. / With this amazing nasal asset, / nothing can get past the Basset.

Nothing short of brilliant. My husband and I laugh as hard or harder than our kids as we read these witty and altogether-too-true poems. Mr. Crawley has an amazing talent to reach a wide age range through his wit and charming poems. Also recommend Cat Poems, by the same author. Both are a very favorite at our house!
