Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I shared this book and CD today with my preschool class, ages four and five. By the end of our first read-along/sing-along, they were howling the chorus. So, of course they wanted to read it again. And again. By the third time through, they knew most of the words.
Fanny and Blue, the stars of the book, are typically average dogs who do typically average doggie things -- chewing on shoes, chasing squirrels, going for walks. They don't know any tricks, and they've never won any prizes, but their young owner wouldn't trade them for the world. Any kid who loves a dog can understand that devotion.
The fun-to-say rhymes could stand on their own, but the infectious tune and the bold, silly illustrations make this a sure winner. I suspect this book will join Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, Bad Kitty, and No, David! as one of my class' storytime favorites.
