Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dog Loves Books, which is based on a picture book series by Louise Yates, is an animated preschool series that shows how wonderful reading can be. It also highlights how reading can be a way to find answers to questions or problems. Each gentle episode is short enough for young children's attention spans, while being colorful and lively enough to keep them engaged.
Is It Any Good?
This delightful animated series offers a storytelling experience that shows just how much fun reading can be. As Dog reads the narrative out loud, both he and Pug are transported to the story world, and together they see and learn new things. After the tale ends, they find a way to associate the story's narrative with whatever problem they are trying to resolve.
Dog Loves Books' approximately 8-minute episodes are just long enough to tell a good story, but short enough to keep young viewers from losing interest. This, combined with the fact that each installment is sweet and fun, makes it a great TV show for preschoolers to enjoy.
