Five Fantastic Books about Dogs
Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion, Illustrations by Margaret Bloy Graham -- An oldie, but a goodie! The classic story of Harry, who hates to take baths, learning being dirty is not all it's cracked up to be!
How to Be a Good Dog by Gail Page -- a comical book about a dog who tries so hard to be good. Very fun colorful illustrations. My favorite part is Ms. Birdhead, his owner, who actually wears a bird on her head!
Buster by Denise Fleming -- Buster is not excited about the surprise his owner "Brown Shoes" brings home. He is determined not to notice his new roommate, until she comes to rescue and he realizes that sometimes it's nice to have a new friend.

Instead of worrying about being picked on, he sets out to help others. Of course, in the end the cat who picked on him is the one who ends up needing help.
Taxi Dog by Debra Barracca, illustrated by Mark Buehner -- Maxi the taxi dog loves his new owner and riding around in his taxi. They pick up all kinds of interesting and unusual fares as they travel around exciting New York City.
