Nate is in full out dog obsession right now. And he also really enjoys interactive books with things to touch and tabs to pull. So I borrowed Silly Dogs by Gandee Vasan from the library and it is a HUGE hit. It's a small book with only five pages, but Nate could look at Little Stretch (who "loves to play fetch") all day long. He lifts the tab up and signs DOG by hitting his chest. So precious. It's so funny, sometimes you just never can guess what books they'll love. I don't think I would have bought this in the store if I happened upon it.
The book I did purchase when I happened upon it in the store was another Matthew Van Fleet book. Dog is just as great as Tails. Lots of fun to read, lots of dogs to "pet" and even a dog that lifts his leg to pee (with the help of a sturdy pull tab). Gotta love that!
Sniff the tree,
All dogs poop,
All dogs pee"
Mercifully, there is no pile pictured under the "all dogs poop" golden retriever puppy. Although, on second thought, it does seem like a rather unfortunate missed opportunity for another one of Van Fleet's scratch and sniff stickers.
