#83: The Bedtime Book for Dogs - Bruce Littlefield


Synopsis & Book Info:
THE BEDTIME BOOK FOR DOGS is a charming story about a dog who decides that he'd rather walk to the park by himself than wait for his human companion-and discovers that all of his usual activities aren't as much fun without a good friend to share them with. This is an adorably packaged book with illustrations by Paul Heath that makes a perfect gift for dog lovers of all ages, with words dogs will understand and kids will want to read again and again.

My Opinion:
First I'll tell you how the dogs responded, since it was for them. Bella loved it, and I read it to her a few times. Ewok liked it, but only sat twice. The other times she got distracted by something else.
Now for what I think about the book.
Pretty cool!
Who could have thought a dog would have a book for reading, but hey. It has the basic commands and words all dogs learn, and they hear that and listen. Especially during the treats part.
I felt that the middle of the book both dogs kind of fizzled out, but at the very end were lured back in with less words and more of just basic commands.
All in all I have to recommend it. Just for the fun factor it has, whether it works or not.
Oh and keep a couple small treats handy for those parts. See what happens then.


Mommy (Me), reading to Bella. Ewok would not sit still.


4/5


Recommend? Yes, because it's fun!

  1. Now that's an interesting concept. From watching the video I can see why dogs would respond. Somehow I don't think we will ever see a cat version.

    Love the shot of you and Bella.

  2. that is cool. and would be a fun feature for dog lovers. as they are good listeners it was interesting to see how the dog in the video didn't care too much about the book and its illustrations. i've heard of library events where a dog is brought in as a guest and the kids read to him/her.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
