This winning tribute to the enduring love between dog and child celebrates animal adoption -- from the dog's point of view!

In a pitch-perfect debut, animator Michael Relth channels the voice -- and artwork! -- of a loyal pup sharing the simple, sweet, and funny rhyming story of finding a forever family. It's a clever take on a dog's journey from being lost to found -- from shelter to home. Ideal for pet owners, animal enthusiasts and growing families, Picture Book by Dog is brimming with heart and highlights the power of belonging.

First, I'd like to thank Hachette Book Group Canada for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!

This is such a cute, quick and adorable read! I would totally recommend reading this book out loud to a group, and that you can extend on learning to teach children what adoption is all about.

As someone who has adopted and rescued an animal, this was a great connection for me, and I really wish there were more people who could adopt!

The illustrations in the book were super cute, as well as under the dust jacket!  Also, if you really look you can see all the small details as well which I think is a nice touch.

I loved the fact that this was from the perspective of the dog getting adopted! It's a cute way to make children think about what our pets are thinking even if we can't talk to them.

Overall this was such a cute story, and I really loved that it was about adoption and not just getting a pet. It brings another discussion for children to understand what it's like to help a pet in need.

That's all for my review, I hope you enjoyed it!

So until the next time, keep reading!
Your Graduated Bookworm!:)
