What a busy day Dog is having! After waking up, he goes out to the field to chat to one of his friends, Horse. Then he meets the pigs, and they all have fun rolling about in mud. Now Dog needs to clean up, so he joins the ducks in the nearby pond. Splash! After his swim, Dog dries off by running after Cat in a game of chase. They pass their owner Vicky, who is quietly enjoying a picnic on the grass. Soon it is Dog's turn to eat, so he dashes into the kitchen for his dinner. Phew! After such a busy day, no wonder Dog is ready for bed. Goodnight, Dog! Young readers will be kept busy, too, as they turn the pages of this exciting padded book. With appealing images to look at and talk about, it is a wonderful aid to learning that little ones will want to return to again and again. The book is built to last, with sturdy board pages that will stand up to repeated use.
