Our Dog

Author(s): Helen Oxenbury

Picture Books

This is the reissue of a classic first storybook to celebrate Helen Oxenbury's work. A child and his mother take their dog out for her daily walk. She leaps into a smelly pond, rolls in the mud and then, when she gets home, jumps on the bed while she's soaking wet. It is a warm and funny depiction of the mischief caused by a family's dog and a little boy's delight in walking, chasing and washing her. Helen Oxenbury's "First Storybooks" perfectly describe the small but memorable events of childhood. The words are a delight and are perfect for reading aloud, and the pictures warm, affectionate visions of a child's world parents and children will instantly recognize and love. It is a classic by one of the world's most distinguished and celebrated children's book illustrators. It is an ideal way to start a lifelong love of books. It is a definitive collection of first picture books for the very young. It is great to read aloud and appealing to beginning readers. Other books in the classic "First Story Collection" include: "The Birthday Party", "The Dancing Class", and, "Eating Out".
