Dog Days of Summer


Summer vacation is the perfect time to relax in the shade with a good book. And what better subject matter than our best friends — dogs. As we approach the dog days of summer, check out some of our favorite kids' books about dogs. For the littlest readers, start with Sandra Boynton's board book Doggies. Classic picture books like Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy, Go, Dog. Go! (my personal favorite), or Marjorie Flack's Angus are not to be missed, but be sure to make room for some of the newer picture books, as well, such as Once I Ate a Pie, with its poems from the dogs' point of view, or the ever-flatulent Walter the Farting Dog. We think you'll find the perfect pet to spend your summer days with in this bunch.

There are 46 books in this aisle.
