[Children's book. Great for ages 1yr+.]

My little one love, Love, LOVES this book. Tactical elements for little fingers to explore, but much more fun/satisfying for little readers the direct interaction. They control elements of the book via pull tab.

Just be ready to repair or replace as it will get lots of use.

My child is infatuated with dogs, and unfortunately we don't have one (yet). I saw a big fat book at Target called "Cat" that had all these large, clean photos of cats on a white background, coupled with a little rhyme on each page, and lots of interactive stuff like a furry tail or shiny ball for children to touch as they read the book.

On Amazon I found "Dog", which is just as great as I'd hoped, and my 18-month-old cannot get enough of this book. It is a little bit precious, all the slidey thi

This was a really cute interactive book. This book was a very simple, basic book for younger children. This book covers dogs and just basically goes over all types of different dogs. It gives kids the chance to see different types of dogs they might not have known about but it also can let them learn words and have a example of the words they would remember. I loved all the interactive, tab-pull parts. This would be a good book to use with younger children in elementary school classes.

I think I may have enjoyed this book more than my kids, but they insist on reading it again and again. It is especially fun to use different voices and sing it like an opera. Hey, what can I say....I'm a stay at home mom...we've gotta mix it up somehow! Even if you are an adult and just love dogs, this is a great one to add to the collection. We are especially fond of the "all dogs poop and all dogs pee" page.
This book is a fun interactive book for the reader. The authors have provided us with things we can feel and move to have the reader participate in making meaning. A variety of vocabulary is demonstrated such as opposites and synonyms.

Absolutely loved this book due to my love for dogs. It was a very fun and engaging book.

the boy (an avid dog fan) LOVES this book with all of his heart. We read it multiple times a day, and I can't imagine it lasting for more than a year. Not because it's not well made (I am actually pretty impressed with its durability), but because when he gets excited, the boy can get pages flying.

Highly recommended for little dog lovers

Darling -- absolutely darling. If you have or want to have a dog-obsessed toddler, then this is the book for you. I will say that the "special features" (slides, fold outs, and fuzzy bits) are pedestrian, but 2-year-olds will still be in love-- adults doing the reading along will wish for more.

Recommends it for: kids!
This is just one of those picture books that I immediately fell in love with! The "board book" like touch-and-feel, pull-the-tab format is great for little kids who want to have an interactive experience with a book. The photographs of dogs capture some great doggy personalities.

This is the cutest book! It is a board book about dogs of all kinds. It has little patches on the dogs for touching. It also has movable parts. One part you move is the dog's leg at a tree. It is so funny!
I love how this book not only has adorable pictures of the different kinds of dogs, but also has moving parts for a dog wagging a tail or scratching, and the end gives a name to each dog and tells you what kind of dog it is. Adorable, fun and educational :-)

The pug on the cover lured me directly to this book. The pull lever at the bottom of the cover allows you to "wag" the pug's tail. It very cute, but perhaps I'm bias because I have a pug. Maybe the cover model can instruct him on how to wag his tail.

Most of the book is really fun, but I'm not a fan of the picture of the dog lifting his leg on a tree. Yes, that's a fact of life, but it's not something I want to be showing a child.

My daughter loves this book, so much so that I now need to replace it. Too much love apparently is hard on bindings!!!

The boys loved this books so much, they tore it to pieces. Some of the pull tabs still work...I like it because there is a dog named Truman

PCC pop-up book at Farr. A great read for a small group--if you can keep kids from touching all the little parts.

This is the perfect church bok. Chloe loves the touch and feel, Morgan loves the interactive movement, and everyone loves all the cute little dogs!

Almost as good as Tails... but not quite. I love the pull tab where the dog pees on the tree! Very sturdy cardboard pulls and lift the flaps that would be pretty indestructible for young hands.
