What a busy day Dog is having! He wakes up in the morning to hear Bird singing at the window. Dog decides to join in. Dogs can't sing as beautifully as birds can, but fortunately he is soon distracted by another friend! He plays a game of chase with Cat, following the feline out into the garden through the catflap. Outside, Dog meets Frog, and soon they are hopping together to the nearby pond. There Dog laughs with Duck and Fish. Dog does have a lot of friends, doesn't he? Young readers can join in the fun, as they turn the pages of this padded boardbook, with its endearing images of the playful Dog, the tuneful Bird, the active Cat, the bouncy Frog, the friendly Duck and the grinning Fish. With lots to look at and to talk about, this is a charming aid to learning that little ones will want to return to again and again.
