                      Nine funny dogs live their everyday lives in these pages where you can learn all about seasons, colours, food, town and country, night and day, school and work, and much           more—including dog breeds, of course.

Have you ever wondered what dogs do all day when you are not at home. Dorothee de Monfreid’s lovely new picture book will answer all your questions. Take a walk through the pages of this hardback picture book for young readers.

A quirky look at the antics of various species of dogs will encourage children to learn the names of different household items, or things at school or just out and about town. This is also ideal for those children and students whose first language many not be English.

It is bright and bold but without being too busy. It is informative without unnecessary explanations. Children can paw (pun intended) over this book for hours enjoying the funny pictures and absorbing language and new words as they go.

Each double page has a bold title with images from a specific area. I love the bathroom scene with all the dogs in stages of cleaning themselves even down to the puddles on the floor.

Heaps of uses!
