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

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 book is so much fun! My 2yo loves all the interactive components! It's good and sturdy, too.
Titus' favorite book ever. We will have to buy this book. He loves dogs and this book.
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.
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
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.

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.
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.

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!

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.

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.
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!

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
My daughter loves this book, so much so that I now need to replace it. Too much love apparently is hard on bindings!!!
I love this book. It has great pictures and it is funny too! Good for kids of all ages!
Wagging tales, cute doggy faces, moveable parts = great book for dog lovers
The million dollar book. Requested again and again... and again... and again..
