Praise For A Dog Is a Dog

" It's easy to imagine a toddler enjoying this while seated on a mom or dad's knee. " - Kirkus Reviews

"Listeners will enjoy the lively rhythm of the text, and rhyming words encourage them to anticipate which animal may appear before the page is turned. The digitally rendered art is big, bold, and playful. Imaginative portrayals of the animals include the dog ice skating, the squid getting stuck in a bottle, and the moose wearing a headlamp to find his way in the fog. Shaskan has created a fun, fanciful tale that will engage young listeners during storytime or a lap reading." School Library Journal
