Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–This sturdy offering presents full-color photos of charismatic canines embellished with pull tabs and tactile (mostly furlike) textures. The brief, rhyming text highlights various critters and their behaviors, making comparisons and contrasts. On one page, a wheaton terrier (Little dog) is posed next to an English mastiff (Big dog) and a nervous-looking Chihuahua (Teeny dog quakes), while opposite, a neatly coiffed schnauzer backs away from a damp mutt in a tub and the verse finishes, Dry dog,/Wet dog–/shake,/shake,/shake! (a pull tab moves the bather's head from side to side). Unfortunately, some of the concepts are not as clearly presented. One spread reads: Happy dog,/Sad dog,/Friendly dog licks./Slobber dog,/Pant dog,/Drooly dog sticks! Aside from the awkward phrasing, children may not notice that the aforementioned pooch has a touchable sticky tongue (it's rather small) and miss the point completely. A page showing a Lab puppy in a squatting position declares, All dogs poop, while the English bulldog standing nearby lifts its leg–with the help of a pull tab–revealing, All dogs pee. The book ends with foldouts that introduce each pet by name and breed. Leave this one for the bookstore crowd.–Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal

My husband bought this book for our 4 year old (who is famous among everyone we know for being both a book lover and a dog lover), and it is, not surprisingly, one of her favorites. She took it to her pre-K class today, and when I picked her up, her teachers were raving about it! They said that they read it at least three times to the class and that it was the hit of the day! The fun starts before the book is even opened. The tails of the three dogs on the cover are touch-and-feel furry or wag with the pull of a tab. It just gets better from there. This book is packed with a wide variety of clever and creative interactive tricks that are well integrated with the entertaining verbiage. The book is, in fact, clever enough to engage my husband, myself, and our older children; even my college aged daughter is currently petting, pulling, and generally getting a kick out of this book as I write this review. I am online now to order another copy as a gift to my daughter's preschool in her name. Otherwise, she will want to bring this book to school every day for the rest of the year! We highly recommend this book!

I love dogs, so when I saw this book in the store, I had to buy it for my two granddaughters, ages 1 and 3. They loved pulling the tabs to make the tails wag and especially to make the dog pee on the tree! The best part is that this book is very well constructed and can take lots of pulling and petting. Cute pictures and clever, too!

I bought this for my 1 yr old daughter and she just love it - in fact both myself and my husband thought this is one of the best interactive book we have bought out of our hundreds of books! Very sturdy , and very informative ( as it gives you all the names of breed of dogs that have appeared). I have no regret in buying this book at all !

I bought this book for my daughter's first birthday and she's loved it since the first time I read it to her. I admit, I love it too! At bedtime she more often than not requests this book (by panting, her baby sign for "dog"!)
It's a lot bigger than I expected and except for one or two, the moveable parts are pretty sturdy. She's bent one up pretty bad so I kind of have to rush through that page to keep her from tearing the dog's leg off! If your child is a little older and gentler with books it shouldn't be a problem. Our cat even watches and bats at the moving parts! :) Over all it's a great book, and I'm planning on getting the cat one for her next.

Every kid that has seen this book has fallen in love with it. They can't get over the "all dogs poop all dogs pee" page. :) My daughter actually received this book as a gift about 5 years ago and she's 10 now and still loves it. She enjoys showing it off to the younger kids that come along and of course I had to buy this for my nephew who is turning 2 (his 6 year old brother just recently found it and can't put it down either)

I pretty much wrote the same review for "Cat," but we couldn't love these books more. My daughter wants to read them all the time---they are interactive, cute, and clever. So far, they are also pretty solid. I read other reviews about them falling apart: we've had them for a few months and no problems yet. We'll see down the line.

This book was an instant hit with my toddler. We have actually purchased two after the first was mangled beyond repair. I love all of the interactive parts of the story- wagging tail, pull tabs, flaps. It's an adorable story full of super cute puppies (and a cat)! Highly recommended for any kiddos who love dogs!

My kid is in love with the secret moving "sliders". Sturdy. Would recommend!
