Good Dog by Cori Doerrfeld
Who can resist this little charmer? Meet a spotted puppy, wandering alone through the streets. A young girl, securely strapped in the passenger seat of her mother's bicycle, waves to the dog. It is a mutual attraction. The determined little pup follows the youngster and her teddy bear, as the bicycle weaves its way around the city.
My Dog Laughs by Rachel Isadora
It begins with Rachel Isadora’s endpapers which showcase a variety of canine breeds. It's fun to linger here, identifying the various types of dogs.
A page turn leads to the title image of one cute girl and her adorable dog. Their postures and facial expressions are warm and welcoming. This duo is the perfect introduction to the joy of pet ownership.
Opportunities for Dog Lovers
In addition to sponsoring drives for pet food, toys, and blankets, consider creating a photo gallery with favorite dog photos and videos. The gallery may be displayed in the library with desktop computer screensavers or the photos can be showcased online. Invite students to "like" or vote for their favorite dog photos.
