Up Dog - Hazel Hutchins
Released February 2012
Reviewed by Tracy Farnsworth
Up Dog is a charming, simple story about a puppy that gets into a little trouble. It's perfect for toddlers and young children just learning to read. Every page offers clear illustrations detailing the trouble the puppy gets into and then sums up the issue in two simple words. The repetition of "up" is perfect for teaching little ones to read.
At just over 20 pages, young children will not get bored having to sit and listen to a lengthy story. It's the perfect length and the illustrations by Fanny capture the puppy and his adventures perfectly. Anyone who's owned a puppy will sympathize with the pet owner in this story.
If you have a younger reader and need a fun, short story that makes children want to read aloud, Up Dog is the perfect choice. I highly recommend it for toddlers and preschoolers.
