Dog's ABC: A Silly Story about the Alphabet Hardcover – January 28, 2002

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.

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

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. Read morePublished on February 13, 2014 by Kali Davenport
My children love the Dog books. We read "Dog's Messy Day" first. This book will be added to my ABC books for the beginning of the year.Published on October 21, 2012 by VLH3
