The rhyming flows well and the illustrations are vibrant and do a great job of portraying each dog and their differences. This is a book with a great message reinforcing the love between dogs and their kids and the importance of adopting shelter dogs. A good pick for preschool story time or any child's personal collection. Recommended.
But this would be a great choice for a preschool or kindergarten class to talk about their pets. Not only to highlight the differences in pets, but to tell the story of how they became part of the family. Adopted? Child of an earlier pet? Just showed up one day and decided to stay?
Going back to the family thing, it's also a great intro for a discussion about a pet's needs and an owner's responsibilities. So many dogs with different temperaments are described, making it easy for children to understand that each dog is different.
Overall, the rhyming verse is fine, with a good rhythm. The art is consistent, and pleasantly bright. While this book won't be a great pick for every family, I think this is a must to at least borrow iff you're going to surprise your child with a new family friend.
