Dog Loves Drawing by Louise Yates

Do you have a budding artist in your family?  Here is a picture book for them.

Knopf sent me a copy of this picture book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

This is a delightful book that begins with a dog who loves to read.  When he gets a birthday gift that is a journal, he decides to learn to draw.

The best part is that the things he draws come to life and they help draw!  The story goes on page by page in the journal and the drawings do resemble a young one's art.

Why not give your child this book with a journal and some colored pencils for Halloween?  It sure beats candy that will be gone in day.  Leave them with a fun memory of a unique Halloween "treat".

Happy reading.

Great idea to give a book instead of sweets at Halloween...in fact a book is a wonderful gift on any special occasion and none as well. This book sounds like a wonderful read to share with your little one. Another to share with neighbor.
