Dog Loves Books by Louise Yates
What avid reader or bookseller wouldn't like this book? It's precious!
Alfred A Knopf Books for Young Readers published this book and has sent me a copy for review. I'm putting my copy in my personal library because it's so "me".
Dog loves everything about books: how they feel, how they smell, just everything about them. (So do I...)
So he opens a bookstore. (So did I.) And no one comes in to buy books. This not a unique problem for booksellers. After waiting for a while, Dog decides he'll read some of his new books to pass the time. And then he gets his first customer...
This book really does a great job of showing a child the wonders of reading and how much fun it can be to "travel" with a story.
I highly recommend this book. It's great for reading aloud at day cares or with groups of young children as well as a wonderful gift for your budding reader at home. It's for ages 4-8 and Ms. Yates illustrations are delightful.
