Product Description

Come. Sit. Stay. I want to tell you a story. I think you'll like it. It's about a TREAT and a good dog, a very good dog who wanted to go play. But his friend was busy....

THE BEDTIME BOOK FOR DOGS is a charming story about a dog who decides that he'd rather walk to the park by himself than wait for his human companion-and discovers that all of his usual activities aren't as much fun without a good friend to share them with. This is an adorably packaged book with illustrations by Paul Heath that makes a perfect gift for dog lovers of all ages, with words dogs will understand and kids will want to read again and again.

My take on this book:
I love dogs, and when I heard about this book written for dogs I was interested to see if my dogs would be interested, and I gotta say it was a hit. It is filled with words that I use all the time with my dogs anyway, such as come, stay, good dog, and treat, hey what dog doesn't listen when you say the word treat. As I read the book to my two dogs they sat in rapt attention for the whole book.
The bright colors and fantastic illustrations will certainly hold the attention of a child, and because its written on and eight year old reading level its perfect for young kids to read to their own dogs. A great little book for young and old alike. If you are owned by a dog then your certainly going to want to pick up a copy to read to your best friend. This book would also make a fantastic gift for dog lovers. A fun five star read.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

  16. I wonder if my dogs would actually listen to this? They are both pretty lazy and one likes to lay on the couch so I'm sure I could get them to at least pretend to listen! Thanks for the follow ~ following you back!

    I'm going to see if my dog is as good a listener as yours were (somehow I think I already know the answer to this question, and it's no, lol).
