Review: Our Dog Knows Words

The family in this book has a very smart dog. It knows words. Words like 'Sit', 'Shake hands', 'Stay' and 'Come'.

Yes, it knows the words, but it doesn't always obey …

'Lie down' works wonderfully if it means the dog can lie down on the family bed.

'Stop' doesn't work so well if there's a cat involved and the chance of a chase!

This father-and-daughter author/illustrator team have clearly created Our Dog Knows Words from their own dog-loving experiences. The result is a sweetly amusing picture book for the very young that shows just how much love, fun and mischief a dog can add to family life.

After all, bath time is never boring when it involves a furry companion. And what could be better than kids and dog singing together?!
