Picture Book: My Father the Dog

This picture book is aimed at a slightly older reader, as the joke is a somewhat sophistocated. A little girl provides the reader with evidence of the similarities between her newspaper fetching, sore-losing, napping, ball chasing dad, and their dog. The bright cartoonish illustrations are very attractive, and older kids will giggle as dad and the dog both pee in the bushes, and drink from the hose at the same time. It's a good thing mom says the family can keep him.
Funny and simple, this book is a lightweight read that most kids will really enjoy.
