Before my review today, I get to announce the winners of Mo Willems’ newest book, “The Pigeon Needs A Bath!”

The winners are –
DEBBIE AUSTIN (who really, really, really wanted to win)
KIMBERLY (and her hot-dog obsessed toddler),
STACY JENSEN (which is good because apparently Enzo needs a bath too)!!!

Little Dog in the Middle of the Road
by Sharon P. Stanley
Illustrated by Deidre Carr
28 pages – ages 4+
Published by Silver Tongue Press on November 3, 2013
Little dog’s owner is going on a trip and she tells him to stay put. Don’t worry, Mrs. Thistleberry is going to come look after him. But Mrs. Thistleberry doesn’t like Little Dog very much. She doesn’t play games with him. Little Dog decides there is only one thing to do – go look for his person! Little Dog wiggles out of the yard and sets off to search. After a while, Little Dog decides this wasn’t such a great idea. Will he ever find his person?
Who doesn’t love a good “lost dog” story? 🙂 This is a very good book for young kids to read by themselves and I think it would also make a great read-aloud. I think that Ms. Stanley’s writing style is one that kids will enjoy. The words are simple so younger kids will be able to read it by themselves. The illustrations are very cute and will make you smile. The cover image is a bit “smushed” but I think that was just a publication problem. The interior illustrations don’t have that problem. This book would make an excellent bedtime story.
This book was nominated as a perfect picture book by Susanna Leonard Hill! Check out Ms. Hill’s review HERE.
