Please Take Me for a Walk

by Susan Gal

Published by Alfred A. Knopf, 2010
32 pages
ISBN: 978𢠥75858635

Ages 3-7

A dog begs to be taken for a walk, naming all the things it wants to do outside (except the obvious one). It would like to chase squirrels, watch people in the neighborhood play, and meet other dogs to introduce to its best friend (its owner). A patterned text using repetition and rhyme conveys the excitement and anticipation that a dog exudes when asking to leave the house. Charcoal-on-paper and digital collage illustrations accompany the narrative, alternating busy scenes from the community with a familiar image of the dog requesting again and again: 揚lease take me for a walk.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
