Whether it's slurping up spaghetti or catching some sun at the beach, the everyday wonders celebrated in this collection of poems will appeal to young readers.
Cleverly crafted by Mordicai Gerstein, "Dear Hot Dog" follows three friends from the time they wake up and brush their teeth to when they snuggle up for bed with their favorite stuffed animal. In between playing outside, making crafts, eating their favorite treats, and reading, together they delight in the adventure and magic that each day brings. Gerstein's vibrant illustrations and lighthearted verse make "Dear Hot Dog" a great introduction to poetry for young readers.
