Book Review; Dog Loves Books by Louise Yates

21st February 2010 2 Comments

Random House publishers asked me to try this book out with Toddler Boy and Fifi and I am only too happy to oblige! Dog Loves Books is the story of Dog who loves books so much, that he opens up his own bookshop. At first, the bookshop is unpopular, so he decides to read all the books. When a customer finally comes in, he knows which books are the ones to recommend.

This is a genius story which we read when Toddler Boy’s friends the Little Garden Helpers were over to play. It kept all the kids amused and best of all, the story is one that subtly encourages children to read more. We like a bit of good brain washing in this house, so I heartily approve of the story. The illustrations are nicely unusual and felt accessible. Overall, the book is nicely presented. It’s great to find a book that my children like which doesn’t involve super-hero’s or television/film characters!

This book has become a firm favourite in our house and has sparked off a few drawing sessions. Well worth acquiring, if you have a toddler. It scores very highly in our house!

    A good combination of gorgeous pictures as well as a positive message in the words, sounds like perfect bedtime reading!
