Sometimes you want a quick and fun read with your kids. And this month’s suggestion is one of my favorites. This month’s Read Aloud Wednesday Book Recommendation is A Dog Is A Dog by Stephen Shaskan.
Unlike some Dr. Seuss and more like Sandra Boynton, the text is not one that will trip you up.
In the spirit of the great cartoon illustrators, Stephen has created colorful pictures and goofy ideas for every reader to enjoy.
Personally, I love the progression of animals he leads you through.
This book will take you about three minutes to read out loud, but it’s catchy. You will find yourself memorizing it before you know it. Or making up your own rhymes to your own story.
That would be a great family project to do with this story. Pick four animals, write your own poem and illustrate it.
