Will You Help Doug Find his Dog?
Publisher: Barefoot Books
Poor Doug has lost his dog at the park and he needs help finding him. It’s up to us, the reader, to become detectives and find the lost canine friend.
On each page, Doug shares clues about his dog, and that's when the interactive part of the book comes in. As Doug describes his dog, listing one characteristic at a time, readers are encouraged to pat the dogs with spots, and tickle all the small dogs, among other funny actions. Little ones will really enjoy stroking, shaking and patting the pages while trying to discover which dog belongs to Doug.
Short in length and with so many things to do and spot throughout, reading this book is perfect for a fun activity – making it great for reluctant readers or those who tend to fidget a lot during storytime.
Illustrator Carmen Saldana does a fantastic job of creating adorable dogs of all shapes, colours and sizes; each with their own unique expressions and personalities.
Not just for dog-lovers, Will You Help Doug Find his Dog? is a great interactive book for one-to-one reading time.
