Bookstagang's Best Board Book of 2021

“A playful and funny romp that will appeal to dog-owning tots.”Kirkus Reviews

“Children will delight at seeing the baby from the point of view of a dog, especially those who live with four-legged friends. Those who don’t have puppies around will be sure to beg for one after reading this board book treasure.”—New York Journal of Books

“Original, playful and heartwarming.”Midwest Book Review

“Darling, bold collages and minimal text present the arrival of a new baby from the family dog’s perspective, with enough wry humor to make even adult readers smile.”—School Library Journal

“A fun addition to storytime and board book collections, this would be especially fitting for a storytime about - or with - dogs, with a few points for emphasizing how to safely and kindly interact with our four-pawed friends.”—Jean Little Library
