We picked this book from our public library.

This is something I would say that would capture the younger kids being as the pictures will keep them engaged and it would be great for those learning to read as there are just a few words on the page and they are easy to read.

The pictures made us laugh and our favorite dog was the wiener dog. As it says in the book "Cool down with a hot dog." Silly book but I wouldn't call it a sing-along book.

This is a dog lover's dream no matter if you are just a pup or all the way to a mature dog's golden years.

The use of the verbs to mainly make the story go along is ingenious and will delight your little ones especially as they mimic the sounds that real dogs make.

The pictures are wry and wonderful and remind me of so many dogs I have had, or have, now. I am sure the same will happen to all dog lovers who read this book!
I felt positively slobbered upon with the accurate rhyming of this book's descriptions.

Adorably fabulous pictures, and a really fun possibility for getting toddlers to make a bunch of different dog and puppy sounds.

9/14/10 & 9/16/10 This went wonderfully with toddler time. The kids (and parents) went right along with barking, yipping, scratching, howling, and more. And it was perfect to fit into an unplanned dog theme.

9/28/10 & 9/30/10 Only 3 toddlers in the Tuesday group, and the parents did not do much to get them involved. So it was just me up there and didn't work well
Can you tell that I’ve been preparing for a dog-themed story time? This is a perfect story time book: big pictures, bright colors, not much text on each page, and short. The best part is that each page ends with three onomatopoeia words that you can have the kids say along with you. This will definitely get you in a doggie mindset as you “Aroo” along with the puppies on the page, but it has the tendency to get kids riled up, so plan carefully.

I like this book for the very young child, but older readers will not be able to get very much from this book. Little ones like my daughter liked to make the noises and of course dogs are aalmost always fun to feature in a picture book.

What I liked was that the illustrations are bright, colorful, and quite detailed. My favorite page was the sign along with dogs that went aroo!

Fun book!

This has all the things I look for in a good book for children and it has tons of illustrations of dogs! This book also provides plenty of interaction while reading with your child. I'm just not as fond of it. That's just my personal taste. It has nothing to do with the book.
Jed's current favorite book, although I feel it ends rather abruptly. But this is a picture book, not a novel. A toddler doesn't need character development in a book about the different sounds that dogs make:) We're both in love with Charles Fuge. His illustrations are so engaging and I don't mind reading them over and over (and over).
Literacy skills:

Print motivation-The silly pictures are engaging for children which promotes a love of reading.

Phonological awareness-This book goes through the plethora of sounds a dog makes.
Nice illustrations showing all types of dogs and the associated sounds they make during different daily activities. Fun to use at storytime and have the children make the noises too. Aroo!

Did not capture my daughter's attention at all. I tried to read it to her several times and she did not respond like she normally does with books she likes.

The illustrations were great.
Could be a good read aloud with very fun onomatopoeia. Good way to introduce the idea of different breeds of the same animal to kids.
This one didn't do much for me, but the illustrations are incredible.
Cute as a board book for babies who like to make doggie sounds!
Great book with lots of fun dog sounds for Kids to imitate!

No plot but lots of sound effects! Perfect for tots!
