What Dog Knows by Sylvia Vanden Heede, Marije Tolman

Wolf is tired of dog always being smarter than he is, so he checks a book out on facts from the library.  The fact that he can't read has nothing to do with it.

Gecko Press and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published August 1st.

This is a children's educational book that is done in a unique style with lots of fun thrown in with the facts.  The subjects covered are diverse, ranging from mummies to dragons and your child gets offered ideas on activities that can be at home as well as a quiz at the end of each section to see if they've learned the content.  It's only one question and it's not difficult, they won't notice they're learning.

Here's sample page from the inside of the book:
This shows the quiz and the type of activities offered.

I really liked the way this was put together.  The competition between dog, wolf and the cat is fun to read about and makes the learning fun.
