Love this book- wonderful story and illustrations,
This review is from: Some Dogs Do (Hardcover)
My 11 month old loves looking at the illustrations in this book and it has a very nice rhyming story. I would highly recommend it because it has a valuable lesson. It teaches children to not be held back by limitations that are imposed on them by others.
---UPDATE: My child is now 16 months old now and this is his favorite book. He actually sits through it and listens to every word without moving an inch (an impressicve feat for my active toddler). I also like the text- when i read other books i normally improvise but this book needs no improvision! it is perfect!!
SUMMARY of STORY (warning spoiler): The dog, Sid, finds out he is able to fly on his way to school but at school when he tells his classmates they say that "dogs don't fly". He tries to show him but he cannot fly again since he is no longer happy. When he gets home he is very depressed and tells his dad that "dogs don't fly" but then his dad begins to fly. Sid becomes happy again and flys next to his dad.
