My dog and I visit with children as a pet therapy team. I bring dog-themed books with me so that kids can read to my dog (she is a very non-judging audience). I have several picture books and books for early readers, but I also wanted books for slightly more advanced readers too. This book as well as Three Stories You Can Read to Your Dog were an excellent choice!
The book arrived on a day I was scheduled to visit a domestic violence shelter. I grabbed it and took it with me without reading it first. I was in for a treat at our therapy session. We met with a reluctant reader. She really wanted to do the bare minimum to get to the point in the session when she would be rewarded with trick time with my dog, but the book is written as a conversation between the young reader and the dog; each story ends with a hook for the next chapter. For example, the end of the first story ends with "Hey, good dog. Do you want another story? Here is another one just for you." She read it before she knew was coming and before I knew it, she was reading the next story, and then the next. The girl who didn't want to read at all read the entire book!
