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?!
