Summer Reading Day 69: Our book today was Don’t Lick The Dog: Making Friends With Dogs by Wendy Wahman, an adorable book about having good manners when meeting new canine friends. Told in rhyme, it goes over the etiquette of meeting new dogs: asking the owner first, where and how to pet, etc.
We liked this book a lot! Teaching children how to safely approach and interact with strange dogs is a crucial skill, and doing so with a fun picture book seems like a good way to show and reinforce this behavior. The colors are bold and bright and the illustrations vibrant, so JJ really liked them, and the rhymes are cute and fun to read. The length was just about perfect, too. We would absolutely recommend this one for every little dog lover to read at least once! Baby Bookworm approved!
