Old Dog Baby Baby

by Julie Fogliano
Illustrated by Chris Raschka

Published by A Neal Porter Book / Roaring Brook Press, 2016
32 pages
ISBN: 978𢴓96438538

Ages 2-4

A family抯 old dog is perfectly content to spend the day snoozing but 揾ere comes baby baby crawling across the kitchen floor. The dog has no choice but to wake up. He seems to enjoy the attentions of the baby, even the poking and paw-squeezing, but before long both dog and baby are stretched out together on the kitchen floor asleep. The gentle rhythmic text uses just a few words to show the loving relationship between the two, and the watercolor illustrations are comfortingly soft-edged, showing a rotund blonde baby. The rest of the family plays a minimal role but, when shown, includes two moms. (Ages 24)  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
