Summary

Summary

Dogs, dogs, dogs. I love dogs! Bestselling author Sue Stainton and bestselling illustrator Bob Staake come together to tell of a rambunctious boy's journey through the park on his way to adopt the pet of his dreams--a dog, of course!

The short, upbeat, rhyming text and vibrant illustrations make I Love Dogs! perfect for reading aloud to the youngest of dog enthusiasts, but this gem makes a great gift for anyone--of any age or breed--who has ever wanted to shout to the world, "I Love Dogs!"

With lazy dogs and crazy dogs, yappy dogs and happy dogs, dogs in the park and dogs that bark, dog lovers will surely want to come back for more, and there's plenty to discover in the detailed illustrations on a second, third, or even fiftieth read.

Dog lovers who enjoyed reading Dr. Seuss's Go, Dog, Go!, Bob Staake's My Pet Book, or Patricia MacLachlan and Emily MacLachlan Charest's I Didn't Do It will certainly want to add this doggone fabulous read to their library shelves!

Booklist Review

Simple verse and comic cartoons combine to celebrate a bounding, boundless variety of dogdom. A little boy with a big affinity for dogs works his way through a city park that's chock-full of canine variety. Along the way, he follows a series of ADOPT A DOG TODAY! signs as he catalogs all of the kinds of dogs he loves: Yappy dogs, happy dogs / Fluffy dogs, scruffy dogs. Finally, he arrives at his destination: a place where he can adopt a happy bundle of his own. Stainton's couplets frolic like the energetic dogs they chronicle, filling the patterned rhyme with both predictable and unpredictable descriptions. Staake's trademark style, a polychrome midcentury madness, here depicts purple people and plaid puppies on an ebullient municipal backdrop and echoes the outing's delightful spirit with waggish detail and creative abandon. Individual viewers will pore over this and storytime audiences will roar! Dog-lovers rejoice!--Barthelmess, Thom Copyright 2014 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-"Dogs, dogs, dogs," chants a red-haired boy with a large, round head and striped shirt, as he strolls through the park on a sunny day. During his walk, he encounters all sorts of canines. No matter their size, shape, personality, or breed, he adores them. The boy makes note of the different varieties he meets, from "strong dogs" and "long dogs" to "shaggy dogs" and "waggy dogs." On his journey, he passes several signs advertising an adopt-a-dog program. Finally, he reaches the street and eagerly heads into the local pet store. As the proprietor hands him his own smiling pup, the boy says once again, "Dogs, dogs, dogs. I love dogs!" Staake's dynamic digital illustrations add energy and humor to the rhyming text. Each spread depicts a number of pups enjoying a romp in the park. All of the canines are bursting with unique personality and their owners are just as diverse as their pets. In the middle of all the action, the boy cannot contain his delight as he moves from page to page. Pair this exuberant title with Jane O'Connor's The Perfect Puppy for Me (Viking, 2003) or Wanda Gag's classic Millions of Cats.-Linda L.
