Dog Loves Books by Louise Yates

Dog loves books, but he hates waiting. When he open a bookstore, waiting for customers to visit isn't for him. Instead, he loses himself in the store's books. When Dog reads, he isn't alone. He has dinosaurs, kangaroos, and aliens for company. Finally, Dog's bookstore has a customer. He knows just the books to offer.

What I thought: I like dogs and books. A dog who enjoys books is a great idea for a book. Dog (as drawn) is an endearing character. He doesn't seem to be any particular breed, but a mixed up mutt appeals all the more. The illustrations are soft hued and appealing. My favorites are Dog with the dinosaurs and then the kangaroos. Perfect for preschoolers, Dog Loves Books will pair well with Lola Loves Stories by Anna McQuinn.

Story Time Themes: Libraries, Books, Imagination.
