Dog books are hot

Writes Rebecca Young of the Tacoma News Tribune:
“These days, canines are trendy, and adults are purchasing and reading more dog books for pleasure and information and buying more for their children. In response, publishers are churning out titles that focus on America’s favorite pet.

Among the new crop of dog books is “May I Pet Your Dog?” by Stephanie Calmenson, illustrated by Jan Ormerod. Calmenson’s dachshund Harry narrates, walking a boy through scenarios – frisky dog, big gentle dog and snarly dog. Each time the boy makes sure to ask before touching (Clarion Books; $9.95, ages 3-8).”

Here’s a list of more Dachshund books for kids.
