On each spread, the narrator professes to love opposite types of dogs (big or small, hairy or bald, etc.), but I found I usually liked only one half of each pairing (big, hairy, etc.) so I had a book that was half full of dogs I didn't like and a twist ending that was pretty stupid. Blah. ( )

This book is about the many different varieties of dogs in the world. It is about how there is big dogs, small dogs, furry dogs, messy dogs and so on. I would say the pictures is what primarily tells the story because this book has fewer words which I think makes it easier for younger kids to read.

Loved this cute dog book. ( )

An excellent book for comparing dogs. The dogs are all different kinds of breeds. The book illustrates the different sizes and behaviors each dog may exhibit. Dog lovers of all ages will love this book. This book is a speedy read and fun for reading out loud.
Personal Reaction:
I loved this book. Since we are a family with lots of pets, this book was perfect. Of course it made me miss all the dogs that I have had over the years and long for another one, but we have decided that 2 cats, 3 bunnies, and 1 inherited Chihuahua is plenty.
Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. Children could bring a picture of their favorite type of dog and discuss the characteristics.
2. A lesson on pet shelters and the importance of responsible pet ownership.
3. The children could do a collage art project of different dog pictures. ( )

In this book "Dogs" it tells us about all the different kind of dogs we have. All the dogs are different in look, size, and behavior. Some dogs are good and some are bad. Some has hair and some are bald. After going through the whole book, for me is like it is a good book form small children because most of the children loves dogs and when given information of the dogs they will really love it and enjoy it.
