Dog in Boots review

Dog in Boots

Inspired by his favorite story about a cat with fantastic boots, Dog heads to the local shoe store and emerges with some splendid footwear. But Dog soon discovers that his fancy shoes won t let him do doggy things. He tries flippers, high heels, even skis, but can t find anything that is just right. Could the perfect solution be right under his nose? Wants and needs are contrasted though the process of trial and error in this cheerful picture book, illustrated by an artist whose work Publishers Weekly has called "exceptionally adorable. (goodreads summary)

This heart warming and cute smiley dog is looking for the best pair of boots ever! He tries several different types and finds that each one just isn't what he expected.  The illustrations were so fun and colorful with lively text flowing well from page-to-page.  You will fall in love with Dog's happiness in each scene and enjoy his "keep trying till I find the right one" attitude.  It was indeed a very sweet book to read.  All along, Dog just had to look in the right spot for what he needed instead of what he wanted. Kids will laugh at the end when they see Dog go back home and again read another book that gives him a new idea. I think this is a "just right book" for ages 3-7.~
