Picture Books 2016 #6: Dogs, Dogs, Dogs

I'm Not. by Pam Smallcomb

In I'm Not., we have a couple of caricatured "child" dinosaurs. In the first half of the story, the unnamed main character bemoans the fact that her friend Evelyn is wonderful at so many things, while the main character herself isn't good at any of them.

The second half, however, switches it up. Evelyn takes the stage to talk about what she isn't good at, and all of the things she mentions happen to be things the main character does well.

It's a nice little story about envy and individuality that adults will likely find it as cute as their kids find funny.

How I Spent My Summer Vacation by Mark Teague

An imaginative little boy makes up (or does he?) a cowboy story to share with his class when it's his turn to tell everyone what he did during summer vacation.

I have to say, any "what'd you do this summer" assignment is automatically better if you can pretend you actually did something fun. It'd certainly be better than my old "I stayed at home and did nothing because my family was poor". There was never much worth sharing about that one, believe me.

Dog Loves Books by Louise Yates

This is the first book in a picture series known as Dog Loves, and it's a brief story about an anthropomorphic dog who loves books so much that he opens up a book store.

Unfortunately, none of his potential patrons seem to share his interest in books, and his store is empty a lot of the time... But that's okay, because he'll just pass his time reading!

This is a good choice for a young bibliophile and/or library lover.

Dog Loves Counting by Louise Yates

We're back with the same book-loving dog from the previous book, and this time, he's having some insomnia troubles. Counting sheep isn't helping him get to sleep, so he tries counting other animals while using his books as inspiration.

This is definitely another book for book lovers, even though the focus is on teaching a child to count.

A Dog Is A Dog by Stephen Shaskan

This one's a pattern book teaching kids various animals by telling them that "a dog is a dog unless it's an X"  (and an X is an X unless it's a Y,  and a Y is a Y unless it's a Z, and so on).

The illustrations are quite silly and cute, and the book is actually more baby-appropriately amusing than informational; it's also quite short (only getting through four animals, including the dog, before it's over), so it's definitely baby/toddler fare. It's pretty adorable, though.
