If You Give a Dog a Donut review

If You Give a Dog a Donut

If you give a dog a donut, he’ll ask for some apple juice to go with it.
When you give him the juice, he’ll drink it all up.
Then, before you can say “Woof” . . . Dog is off on a backyard adventure!

The exuberant dog who first appeared in if you give a pig a party is now the star of his very own book. (goodreads summary)

If you are a fan of Laura Numeroff as I am, then you will enjoy this newest book.  As all the other books before, the text is easy to read with lots of humor and the illustrations are bold and colorful.  One thing leads to another for Dog until he ends up back where he started from. It is silly, cute and will make kids giggle out loud.  After reading it, I do admit I felt a little exhausted from dog's energy but this book makes for a nice addition to the If you Give....series. I think this is a "just right book" for ages 3-7.~

  1. Hi, can i ask you something? I’m looking for children books with “scary” animal illustrations like Wolf (or fox) eating pigs (or seven kids or Red Riding hood or birds in Chicken Little) or being pictured with a fat stomach. Any sort of help is appreciated. Thanks in advance. Great blog, by the way!
