Book Review: A Day with Dogs by Dorothee de Monfreid

adaywithdogs_cover_medThis is the ideal book for any little children who love dogs. Its a cute book featuring nine dogs who go about their daily lives. Essentially this is a book of descriptive illustrations which provide the stimulus for lots of interesting conversations with children. However, there are also lots of little vignettes and funny conversations which add to the book.

There were several illustrations which my kids particularly enjoyed; The Alphabet which features dogs and different names for all the letters, Sports which is frankly hilarious and The Kitchen in which the dogs cook their dinner stand out.

We like books which encourage storytelling and thinking and these activities form the basis of good reading and comprehension skills. If you like Richard Scarry’s books then you’ll love this as its a similar more modern version.
