Thoughtful Thursday

Dog in Boots by Greg Gormley, illustrated by Roberta Angaramo is such a fun book!  Dog reads about "Puss in Boots" and goes to the shoe store and tries out some boots, but they don't work for digging. Then he gets flippers, and skis, and high heels.  This story will make you and your children laugh out loud.  Watching dog be silly with shoes, then he reads "Red Riding Hood" so look out here come the clothes!
The engaging artwork is done in a bright style.  The illustrations seem to be done in oils, or acrylic, maybe watercolors too.  It's hard to tell.  Either way, this story will catch the attention of children and adults and will keep them interested wondering what will dog do next.  I'll use this story with my preschoolers and with primary students, Kindergarten to 2nd grade.
