From the Back Cover
It's a dog's life!
Every dog has a tail to wag . . . and a tale to tell. Patricia MacLachlan and Emily MacLachlan Charest asked a collection of canines to speak up—and so they do, in words, barks, and yips. Captured here are accounts of happy days filled with squeaky toys, good smells, plenty of naps, and the very important jobs they do for the people they love to love.

I always feel pretty stupid reading poetry out loud unless it's silly rhymes like Dr. Seuss, but the creative usage of words, fonts, shapes, and spaces encourages some interpretive readings like imitating a dog as you "BARK! BARK! BARK!"
I'll be honest and tell you that the only reason why I bought this book was because of the cover, but I was pleasantly surprised with what I found inside. Dog lovers will especially love this book but beware, your little ones' dog cravings may intensify after reading this book.
