Recommends it for: Dachshund lovers
I LOVED this book! Granted, I am a self-professed crazy doxie lady, and this book is about a boy and his mom who visit another crazy doxie lady and her dachshund, Hamish. The illustrations are really cute, and I loved finding all the doxie-details in the crazy doxie lady's house, like dachshund clothes, dachshund toys, dachshund furnishings, etc. Overall, just a really cute book, especially recommended for dachshund lovers and families of dachshunds. My kids (preschool and kindergarten-age) both ...more
I am not a dog person AT ALL. But if I were I'd probably really like this book about a young child getting to know a dog for the first time. Timid to begin with, but they soon become friends. Fun details in the illustrations (how many dog themed items can you spot?). I still think all dogs apart from helper dogs should be banned (I know, extreme, but that explains why this is a 3 stars not more). I can see this will be a great book for the right people.
Cute story about a toddler who visits a neighbors home and is initially scared by the neighbor's dog. The dog is moved to a bedroom with the door closed to avoid frightening the little boy. The boy and dog become best friends after the dog licks the boy's finger while trying to grab a piece of a cookie he dropped that rolled under the door where the dog was put.
Other than a missing word "to" on the very first line of the book, this is adorable. Heartwarming and engaging illustrations. Often a young child is traumatized by a barking dog, regardless of size. As the book progresses, a friendship is formed. Love a book when adults act like adults rather than belittle a child when there is fear?
