Title: The Bedtime Book for Dogs

Author: Bruce Littlefield

About the Book:

An entertaining tale that children and parents alike will enjoy: a dog decides to take himself for a walk and discovers that life is not as fun without a friend along But this is a children’s book that dogs will find joy in listening to as well. Littlefield tailored the book to pique the interest of a furry friend by filling it with vocabulary and images dogs respond to. “I thought through every aspect of the book–from dogs favorite words to the colors used in the illustrations. I incorporated lots of green and blue, as dogs see most vividly in those colors,” he explains.

My Review:

My six year old son is learning to read and he often practices with our beloved boxer, Jack lying at his feet. I have definitely noticed that Adam is more comfortable reading when his dog is near him so I think it is a wonderful idea to have a book that is meant for kids to read to their dogs. All three of my children thought it was a grand idea and I noticed a boost of extra confidence as my son read it aloud to a captive audience, Jack. It is a fun, simple yet enjoyable tale that is especially heartwarming for those who have a special pet in their life and the illustrations are sure to bring a smile to your face. Our family really enjoyed reading this title by bestselling author, Bruce Littlefield and I am hopeful that this will become a “learn to read” book series with additional titles to come!
