Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (3 ):

This is an adorable photographic board book for kids of all ages. The soft ears, shaggy fur, and pull tabs that make legs move will inspire kids to match words with the photographs of the different kinds of dogs.

Early counting, basic adjectives, and simple adverbs will help the earliest readers master both words and dog breeds. This is an excellent book to put on the floor with your youngest children and watch them entertain themselves -- even without understanding the words.

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.
