It might just be a bit hard for the toddlers to follow and for me to read effectively. But, it is such a sweet story, I think it is worth a try.
Meet Amelia – A Cozy Kitchen
Apr 11, Donna rated it liked it Shelves: children-s. Adorable but naughty puppy. The rhymes are sweet, but there's just a bit of ambiguity at the end that I found a little sad and even scary. This was cute, and I really liked the illustration style. My 6 year old wasn't overly fussed though. Unconditional love for a badly behaved pooch. A great concept with rhymes that start out great, but they devolve into forced meter.
9 Books About Dogs To Read To Your Kid Who Wants A New Pet
The illustrations are okay--I like the bug-eyed pug--but not memoralble in any way. A must-read for any dog lover. Jan 28, Desiree rated it really liked it Shelves: funny-picturebooks.

This review was originally written for The Baby Bookworm. Visit us for new picture books reviews daily! Hello, friends! He tends to chase things, This review was originally written for The Baby Bookworm. He tends to chase things, like cats and birds and cows but never cars! Never again…. He likes to go to the park — and roll in poop. The dog decides to run away instead, spending the night cold, alone, and frightened. He sees headlights coming and becomes scared, but the car stops and out jumps his boy!
Dog is happy, because while he may not be perfect, and he may mess up, he will always love his boy anyway. This one was so sweet, and had a earnestness to it that was utterly moving. The art is funny, tender and fits the tone perfectly. The length is great, and JJ and I both loved this one. Be sure to check out The Baby Bookworm for more reviews!

There's been a long gap since I last read a Mick Inkpen book, then in the space of two months I've reread a classic Billy's Beetle and discovered his collaborations with daughter Chloe.
Sweet Dreams, Little Pup
Thinking about how they differed was a help in analysing what those differences say about the newer work. The story is of a small dog who loves his owner unreservedly but, try as he might, he can't avoid being disgusting, destructive and disobedient! The illustrations have a wilder feeling than Mick's earlier wo There's been a long gap since I last read a Mick Inkpen book, then in the space of two months I've reread a classic Billy's Beetle and discovered his collaborations with daughter Chloe. The illustrations have a wilder feeling than Mick's earlier work, perfect for portraying the little dog's energy and passion but also the distress that displeasing his owner causes him.
The simpler words might at first glance seem like a way to reach a younger audience, but also convey the immediacy of the dog's thoughts and reactions.
This story holds more tension than the carefree tone of the Kipper stories, but for me it captures the feel of a dog more accurately. A picture book for the s and a beautiful work with its own style. If you love Mick Inkpen, be ready for the differences - and enjoy them. Mar 04, Angela rated it did not like it Shelves: preschool , picture-book , human-animal-relationships. This book has some good points the message is about how something ugly and poorly-behaved is still worthy of being loved and loves others , but overall, it gives a bad message about dogs.
Dogs are generally very intelligent and their behaviour largely reflects on how well the humans have trained it and how well they care for it such as providing a safe space where it can't escape and get injured, and teaching it to follow directions such as 'sit'.

This is a story about irresponsible parents, w This book has some good points the message is about how something ugly and poorly-behaved is still worthy of being loved and loves others , but overall, it gives a bad message about dogs. This is a story about irresponsible parents, who are causing their dog and their child stress by not looking after the dog properly.
You don't just "give away" a dog your child is attached to because you can't be bothered to learn about dog behaviour and training. May 08, Karen Miller rated it it was amazing Shelves: lap-book.
By Chloe Inkpen. Dog confesses he steaks socks, shoes, and gloves for the best reason of you, they smell of you. He runs away because…he does. I wish I had this book to remind me when my dog pooped in the wrong place or when my son shot out the garage light with a bb gun. Everyone deserves to be reminded that, no matter what, I will love you anyway. Mar 28, Kayla Boerner rated it it was amazing.
This is such a cute book about a mischevious dog and owner, a little boy. The dog always runs away and it's gets a little sad when the boy doesn't think he is coming back but then he finds him again and it's a good ending. The book is very fun and good for children who have animals themselves or a love for animals. Definitely will be ordering this for my students to read. Jan 27, Carol Jen rated it it was ok Shelves: picture-books , childrens. The illustrations were pretty cute but the story made me kind of sad. The dog was very misbehaved so they want to get rid of him, he wants to run away, he gets hit by a car at one point etc.
I just made my heart heavy at several points May 31, Jenny rated it really liked it.
Puppy and dog lovers will love and understand this cheeky, new Inkpen character. The wonderful rhyme and repeated key words carry the story of this furry, sweatband-wearing family member. Love exists even when you aren't perfect. This pup lives by his own rules and he makes no apologies for it, but could that free spirited, unapologetic attitude get him kicked out of his house? Can he survive if he's not with his kid? I find the poo. Oct 29, JennE rated it really liked it Shelves: picture-books-earlies-k This dog can't sit, can't stay and runs away from fetching but in the end, all that matters is he is loved.

A cute book, possibly to use at the beginning of the school year as a metaphor if something goes wrong, or you aren't good at something like the other kids, your teacher still loves you. May 06, Boni rated it liked it. So much about this I like, but why have a near rhyme in the very first stanza?? And so, Madeline Abigail Arthur, a ten-week-old golden-haired Cock-a-poo, a living, breathing incarnation of Lady from Lady and the Tramp, came to live with us.
