Barbara Joosse is the best-selling author of over thirty books for children. The various editions of her Mama, Do You Love Me?, illustrated by Barbara Lavallee and published by Chronicle Books, have sold more than a million copies. Barbara lives in a little stone house in Wisconsin.
"Fans of David McKee’s Elmer’s Special Day (Andersen, 2009) and the story-line sequence of animals on parade will find a contrast here with Joosse’s simple array of dog breeds expressing their opinions about the situation, without a traditional plot."-School Library Journal
"[An] enthusiastic collection of light verse. . . . Like an actual parade, the exuberant atmosphere-confetti, balloons, costumes, and all-is the main draw."-Publishers Weekly
