Children's Book Review: If You Give a Dog a Donut
If You Give a Dog a Donut
Written by: Laura Numeroff
Illustrated by: Felicia Bond
Published by: Balzer & Bray, 2011
If you give a dog a donut, he’ll ask for some apple juice to go with it.
When you give him the juice, he’ll drink it all up.
Then, before you can say “Woof” . . . Dog is off on a backyard adventure!
The exuberant dog who first appeared in if you give a pig a party is now the star of his very own book. Written in the irresistible “If You Give…” tradition, if you give a dog a donut is another home run from the beloved team of Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond.
* Not only have we read most of the Numeroff's other books in her "If you give a...." series, but we own several of them. Unfortunately, I think they are getting overdone and we all felt like this book was blah. The illustrations are cute and the kids found them enjoyable to look at, but the overall story wasn't really interesting.
Family Rating: so-so.
