With the National Dog Show coming up next weekend, I thought it would be appropriate to share a children's book by Madelyn Rosenberg titled How to Behave at a Dog Show. The book is illustrated by Heather Ross.
As an adult, I think it can be easy to expect a lot from our pet dogs. It can be frustrating when things don't go according to plan, but dogs will be dogs. After reading How to Behave at a Dog Show, I tried to imagine how children see their pet dogs. In their eyes, their dogs must be the best in the world.
How to Behave at a Dog Show is a wonderful book for young children that I believe teaches the importance of valuing the good traits in someone and not lingering on what might be considered a "poor" trait by others. With whimsical illustrations to go along with the words of the book, adults are sure to chuckle while reading this to their children.
Sister and brother, Julia and Charlies, decide to enter their little dog, Rexie, in a dog show. Does he have what it takes to win? Maybe not... but, that doesn't stop these two from cherishing all the good things Rexie can do like digging, running, and being a good friend. He may not be "perfect" but they love him for who he is.
I have been reading How to Behave at a Dog Show to my 3 year old daughter and she finds it amusing. Our dog, Shiner, also liked the book and says that she gives it 4 paws up!
How to Behave at a Dog Show is available for purchase on Amazon and would make a wonderful Holiday gift for a special child in your life. You can follow author Madelyn Rosenberg on Twitter and visit her website and blog HERE.
Here is the official trailer to the book. (You have to watch - it's too cute!)
