My Dog!: A Kids' Guide to Keeping a Happy & Healthy Pet


My Dog!: A Kids' Guide to Keeping a Happy & Healthy Pet Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A primer, an owner's manual, a field guide, and more, My Dog! is the complete book for every child who has a dog--whether it's a brand-new puppy or adopted mutt, or a beloved pooch who's been in the family for years. And it couldn't be more kid-friendly, with its customizable cover (paste in a picture of your dog), tabbed chapters, and a pull-out dry-erase dog care chart.

Written by Michael J Rosen, author of Kids' Best Dog Book, and dubbed a "fidosopher" by The Washington Post, My Dog! covers everything from the basics of handling, feeding, and grooming to history, lore, and the kinds of fun facts kids will always remember (dogs have a sense of smell a million times better than ours; the oldest dog on record, Bluey, lived to be 29). It tells kids how to train their dogs, with illustrations--including action commands like Sit, Stay, Come, and Go to Your Place, and behavioral commands like Speak and Thank-You. There are the simple health checks kids can do. A How to Speak Dog section to insure that kids and dogs remain best friends--including why a raised, wagging tail doesn't always mean "I'm happy," and the important difference between a Yelp! and a Yowl! Even a recipe for Carob "Cocoa" for kids and dogs to bond over after a brisk winter walk.

Included with the book is a field guide to 75 breeds of the most popular and family-friendly dogs kids are likely to meet--each illustrated with a gorgeous full-color photograph and profiled with essential facts, including behavioral insights that make it an invaluable guide to choosing a family pet.
