Dog Loves Drawing is a great book for an art class or for your students to see creativity. The book is full of color and is all drawings, not like a normal books drawings though, this book is made to look like a sketchbook. I picked this book out because of its different illustration technique and was pleasantly surprised when I came to read it. The drawings are easy enough for a primary student to draw, but also complex enough to challenge them. I would argue that the illustrations are the most outstanding element of the book. Throughout a few of the pages other concepts are also brought in through the drawings, examples of this would be the drawing of tic-tac-toe, cylinders, and tallying. When doing a little research on this author I also found that Louise Yettes has other Dog Loves books, such as Dog Loves Counting and Dog Loves Books. These series could be used throughout the classroom when teaching different concepts. It would get the kids excited to remind them Dog will be coming back to the classroom soon.

In this book, after Dog has opened his book store, he receives a gift from his aunt. The gift is a sketchbook. Dog begins to let his great imagination run wild and sketches himself some new friend and goes on an adventure with them. This is a really cute story that can be encouraging for letting the young one's imagination run wild. ( )

This book is the sequel of Dog Loves Books story. The dog who loves to books receives a gift from his aunt. He gets a drawing pad and he gathers he supplies and starts drawing. Little did he know that his pictures would come to life and will help him create a beautiful picture. I like how this book inspires to explore creativity and imagination. A cute story to share with lower grades and create an art lesson out of the story. ( )

This is a great book for students to see creativity. The dog realizes he can draw and his imagination can grow when he receives a blank book. This would be an excellent book to read to students and then have them use their own imagination to draw. ( )

This is a story about a dog who loves books and receives a sketchbook to draw in. The dog essentially "draws" his own book. The story progresses with each page he draws on and his imagination makes the reader feel like the pictures are alive! I loved the illustrations in this book, they were so adorable! ( )
