So many breeds doing so many things!


Great way for kids to learn about the many kinds of dogs they may encounter. My grandkids giggle at the clever rhymes, such as “His best friend the Beagle is looking most regal” and “Dad’s Toy Poodles are eating their noodles.” Vibrant, colorful backgrounds accentuate the lovely, circular illustrations of the many dog breeds.

And it is the name of the breed that provides the sound for rhyming. The dogs act in dog ways and people ways – providing illustrator Candace Schoonover with endless possibilities for her artistic skills. Sit back and enjoy the pages of this book.
