Nine very unique and appealing dogs take us through a ‘typical’ day in their lives (as though they were human) from getting up in the morning/ showering and bathing/ eating/ going to school/ exploring colours, the alphabet, feelings… All the dogs are (well to me, a passionate dog lover) totally irresistible and it is possible to follow your favourite dog through his day.  Printed on thickened paper this is one of those magic books it is possible to put down in the midst of a small group of three, four and five-year-olds and without any adult intervention (until it is asked for or they want to share something with you) know they will be totally hooked for the next half hour at the very least.   
Preschool up/ Age 4 up
