I loved this book! It is a clever, rhyming, lively flight of imagination asking what a dog would be like if he were human? What jobs would he have – as two pages read: “If your dog were human, would he deliver the mail? Or be a robber, and end up in jail?”
How would he drive? What hobbies would he have? What transportation would he prefer? How would he like to spend his time? And all of this is told in a fun, quick rhythmic sequence that hops nimbly from topic to topic. And the pictures are wonderful, lively and perfect!
This is a “my first reader” type book – perfect to be read aloud to babies and toddlers, an excellent book for little ones to begin their reading journey, and a good practice for a kindergartner through second grade. It will spark the imagination of any child whose parents, grandparents, or friends have a dog and of any child who loves a dog – the child will wonder what the dog would be like as a human, leading to many fun and creative thoughts about possible jobs, hobbies, fun, personalities, etc. It places the dog as a human in all aspects of a child’s life – the beach, school, home, sports events, the park, driving or flying, etc, stretching the child’s creativity and adding to the fun. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED!

Children love to play make-believe. So does author Leland P. Gamson in If Your Dog Were a Human. Imagining all the possibilities for a dog who is human is entertaining – and gives us parents an opportunity to talk about the possibilities in our children’s lives. Your child will enjoy hearing the story as well as looking at the whimsical illustrations created by Karen Camden Welsh.

I purchased this book because I like to read bed time stories to my nieces and nephews when they come to stay the night. They absolutely loved this book and they were talking about it the next day and creatively talking about what their dogs do. Shipping as always was great and I had it in time for when my family arrived to spend the weekend.
