Down Girl and Sit, Tiny Goes to the Library, and the Dogs We Read Them To

The other day we went to the library (picture taken by Tintin):









And the boys read to Dasher and Major, dogs from the Heart of Texas Therapy group:





















Review by Tintin, age 7, read to Dasher

Down Girl and Sit: On the Road
Author/illustrator: Lucy Nolan/Mike Reed

On the Road is about two dogs who go on adventures. They like to mess up things. I like this book because it's a little bit funny and it's a good adventure. My favorite part was when Here Kitty Kitty was stuck in a box at the veterinarian's office. When I was reading to Dasher I said "bone" wrong because I wanted to see if he would notice, but he didn't. I would recommend this book to kids who like dogs and dogs who like dog books.



Review by Johnny Boo, age 4, read to Major

Tiny Goes to the Library
Author/illustrator: Cari Meister/Rich Davis

Tiny Goes to the Library is about a dog named Tiny who follows where the boy goes. I liked it because it had a dog in it. My favorite part was when I read to Major. I would recommend this book to dogs and kids who like funny and silly books.

Your library looks lovely - is that a mural on the wall?

I love this idea of kids reading aloud to dogs! I used to have a giant teddy bear in my junior high classroom, and even those boys would happily take their turn reading to the bear.

Holly said...

Yes, it's a mural, right next to the door to the story time room.

Thanks for linking up at Feed Me Books Friday! Great book picks for your k-9 friends! We were reading about a particularly smart and helpful dog recently, and my 4 year old announced, "we should get a dog like that!" Too bad you can't just pick them out that way!
