This book is a much loved classic, but did you know that it's also a great pick to read aloud at the end of a unit on adjectives. With all the dogs in this book, kids can see that the only thing that sets them apart is the adjectives. :) We have the kids do a thumbs up whenever we say an adjective ( to help reinforce the lesson but not detract from the fun of the book....because it really is a fun book!)
This is an I Can Read It All by Myself beginner book, and we've never met a kid who didn't BEAM with pride after reading it. We think it's a classroom staple!
