Back of Book:
As one girl walks home from school, she loves nothing more than to look at all the people and dogs she passes on the way. There are small people with tall dogs, people, and dogs who share ice cream, and even pairs with matching mustachios. Some people are just like their dogs and some are very different, but no matter what, it’s clear that they’re the best of friends. When the girl finally makes it home, she has her own best friend waiting for her.
I received a copy of this picture book from Page Street Kids Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
This is a perfect story for all dog lovers! It follows a young girl as she walks around her neighborhood and observes many dogs and the owners who love them. The text is written in a first-person narrative which allows readers to connect with what the girl is saying. The illustrations are whimsical and showcase a variety of different breeds and colors. My students were able to find dogs that resembled their own. This is a perfect book to use for any comparing and contrasting unit. I plan on using it as apart of my Writers Workshop this next school year. A lovely story in every way.
