Recommends it for: ages 0 to 4; dog lovers
This is such a cute alphabet book. I really love it.

From the Dalmatian front (face) and back (tail) covers, these dog photos are wonderful and the words that go with the letters are all dog related (C = come, I = itch, Y = yawn, etc. etc.) They did, as is typical, cheat with X.

At the back of the book, the breeds of the dogs in each photo are given.

I wish some mixed breeds were featured but that’s my only gripe.

This is a great alphabet board book (yes, read the board book edition!) and it’s suita
I'm having a hard time reading anything these days, so when I saw this book lying on my friend Jini's floor, I couldn't resist picking it up. I thought to myself, "Jesus, Amanda, there's a book you can read start to finish in one sitting. Just read something already!" So I did. I read it in one sitting (twice)! All twenty-six pages of it. Plus the page at the end where they tell you which breed each puppy is. And gosh golly, I sure am glad I read it. I mean, it's no Dr. Seuss,

This is the cutest alphabet book ever! Each letter is accompanied by a one- or two-word caption (A is 'Arf! Arf!', B is 'Beg.'), and an adorable photo of a puppy (many shot with a fisheye lens, making them even cuter). It's hard to pick a favorite, but I think mine has to be 'Oops.' I defy anyone to read this book and not smile the whole time. A wonderful storytime book for toddlers or preschoolers; the breeds in each photo are all listed in an index in the back, making this a good selection for ...more
This is just a fun photographic alphabet book. I wish were a member of the Dog Artist Collection. It consists of various fun photographs of puppies, primarily shot through fish-eye lenses or with other distortion, each accompanying a dog-related word (eat, fetch, good dog, howwwwwl!, etc.). Fun for the dog lover or anyone else; my daughter the cat lover was a bit less interested than I'd hoped.

Lydia picked this book out and brought it to me. I had to get it for her. She loves flipping the pages and looking at all the different types of dogs. There is no story, just pictures of dogs with letters. It is not my favorite book to read, but Lydia loves it. She will sit by herself and turn the pages. This was on of her first words "Daw-gee"

An alphabet book for the serious dog lover -- which includes most lower school students. The large color illustrations are quite humorous and incredibly adorable. The sparse text matches each page perfectly. I especially appreciated the list of breeds at the end.

Pictures of cute puppies!


At the end of the book it tells you which breeds of puppies were used. My favorite being the labrador retriever. You can't go wrong having puppies in a children's book.

The cutest picture was the second page with the litter of Westie pups! Though I be partial, who could resist those faces?

Maybe I am just not the right kind of dog person for this book, but lack of creativity, theme, or interesting words left me disappointed.
The pictures are cute, and Teddy is starting to pick up on the words associated with each picture, instead of just saying, "DOG!"
