Is It Any Good?
DOG LOVES BOOKS is a book about reading that's not only fun to read but that also promotes the idea of reading as fun. It also manages to work in what books are good for beyond a good adventure: They can help you pass the time, not feel alone, experience other worlds, and make friends. It also promotes the notions of waiting patiently, finding ways to occupy yourself during periods of downtime, and staying upbeat in the face of disappointment.
Kids who like dogs and fun stories will love dog's determination to keep his business afloat, and parents can appreciate a book that's fun to read and doubles as a PSA for several good life lessons that can never be instilled too soon.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
