Is It Any Good?

Parents say: (1 ):

The language is simple, though it becomes more adventurously playful at the end. The art also is simple, with the dog depicted by a thick black line against the white page and the chick by a colorful lily petal mimicking feathers. The art and dog are both exuberant, and young kids will like this big, bounding pup who crooks an ear, crouches to play, and wags his tail.

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.
