The Best Days are Dog Days by Aaron Meshon


The Best Days are Dog Days by Aaron Meshon

A little girl and her pet French bulldog are the perfect playmates in this all-day outdoors adventure! When his family sets out to explore the neighborhood, one puppy is eager to join in the fun! He gets to do everything his sister does with his own added flair, of course. Together they eat (pancakes for her, kibble for him), bathe (tub for her, sink for him), and play (chasing squirrels for both). Side by side, they enjoy the same things, each in their own way. And when the long day comes to an end, both settle down for a restful sleep that is, until tomorrow comes. Because when every day s a dog s day, every day is the best day . . . especially when you can spend it with the person you love.


* Bold, stylized illustrations in neon-bright colors use simple shapes, varied type treatments, and creative labeling to show the differences and similarities in the actions of canine and child.

Publishers Weekly, starred review As Sis and dog fall asleep nose to snout, the shared thought bubbleabove reads, We can t wait for tomorrow! Young listeners, too, won t want to wait long for another dog day with this pair.

With brightly colored images, playful visual clues scattered throughout, largefont sentences embellished with splashes of eye-catching hand-lettering, and a delightful friendship at its heart, this would be a great choice for a group story time.

The vivid acrylic illustrations and hand-lettering elevate this picture book...Perfect for all libraries with dog-loving patrons.
