Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The spunky canine from Dog's Colorful Day returns in Dog's ABC: A Silly Story About the Alphabet by Emma Dodd. In the beginning, "An apple falls on his head/ Dog barks, and a bird flies/ out of the apple tree." The words "apple" and "bird" appear in opposite corners of the spread, next to their upper- and lowercase initial letters.

From Booklist

Ages 3-6. Cleverly manipulating Dog's day so that his canine adventures progress through the letters of the alphabet, Dodd offers a comic primer for pre- and primary-schoolers. Dog's chunky white canine shape is contained within thick black lines that also capture his few but endearingly expressive features. As Dog romps across the clean sweeps of bold color on the pages, he is stung on the nose by an insect (I), which causes him to jump (J). Thinking food will make him feel better, he heads for the kitchen (K) on his little legs (L) to eat his meal (M) and take his mind off his sore nose (N). Such is the logical way the text, printed in display type of varying sizes, records Dog's actions and reactions and reinforces the letters of the alphabet. Much deliberate thought and humor underlie this deceptively simple, totally winning presentation. Ellen Mandel

This is an excellent book to teach the ABC's.

She is autistic, and not terribly into being read to, but I love to read to her.
Suzanne Amara
I think that was just laziness on the author.

This is an excellent book to teach the ABC's. Especially for a second language learner. The illustrations are nice!

My 2-year old daughter loves this book. It's a simple story of the adventures of dog, and it's colorful which most kids love. I bought it in hardcover as I've noticed it tends to hold up better to a toddler than paperback books. I would recommend it to anyone with toddlers!

My daughter adores this book! And that is no small thing, as there are very few books she loves. She is autistic, and not terribly into being read to, but I love to read to her. As soon as she saw this book, somehow she seemed to know it was one she'd like. The pictures are big and clear and cartoon-like, and the writing is simple without being overly simple, and there are LOTS Of sound effects written in, which she enjoys! She isn't too into the ABC nature of it yet, and in fact it's a little understated. That's nice---some books try so hard to be ABC books they forget about having any kind of story, but this one is mostly story, with the ABC aspects blending in smoothly. We've read this about 20 times in the past few days, and that is quite a record for her. I'm going to look for other books by the author!

I was surprised to see the tattered, torn, worn out book in my order. I bought the book as part of a gift, but was too embarrassed to give such a worn out used book.
