In July we will read about cats and dogs. (Some of my personal favorite creatures on the planet!)

This thread is now devoted to the books that did not make our official six club reads for July. Please feel welcome to post about other picture books about cats and dogs here.

Dolly (dollymart) | 252 comments Our girls absolutely adore the book I Got Two Dogs

The Henry and Mudge and Mr. Putter & Tabby books are always favorites, too.

Thank you all for the nominations! (And my apologies for getting to this a few days late. It's been a bit hectic around here with my little guy going through his three month growth spurt!)

It is now time to VOTE for the five books from our official nominations above that you would most like to read with the group. Please make your selections and post them in a comment below. Voting closes June 23rd. Thank you! :-)

They all look tempting, in their own way - I'll read whatever I can find that the rest of you choose. :)

"Let's Get a Pup!" Said Kate

Mr. Putter & Tabby Pour the Tea

Morris and Buddy: The Story of the First Seeing Eye Dog

Only the Cat Saw

There are so many. I should have chimed in during the nomination period, but I haven't been participating. I'll try to read the selected books this month.

Jenny | 722 comments Arlo Needs Glasses This is darling and works especially well for the toddler/preschool age group.
Say Hello to Zorro!
The Dog Who Cried Wolf
Wabi Sabi
The Cat's Baton Is Gone: A Musical Cat-tastrophe

I am interested in Kamik: An Inuit Puppy Story, but it isn't available in my library system, so I'm not voting for it. It sounds wonderful though. If it is chosen, I would try to get it through ILL. Several of the titles others voted for aren't available in my system this time which is too bad. There are several I'd like to read.

The votes are in! I've decided to do six official selections this month to be fair to our furry friends -- three for cats, three for dogs ;-) Feel welcome to choose only five of them if you prefer.

Fog Cat
Wabi Sabi

Good Dog, Carl
"Let's Get a Pup!" Said Kate
Say Hello to Zorro!

I hope you are all enthusiastic about the selections, able to obtain the titles, and eager to join our discussion in July! :-)

This now becomes the Master List and General Discussion thread for books about cats and dogs.
