Little Dog is so sweet!

Little Dog and Duncan by Kristine O’Connell George, illustrated by June Otani; published by Clarion Books; New York; 2002.

The wrap around image on the cover gives us perspective on how much bigger Duncan is than Little Dog.  The bright green end pages let us know that this is a happy book.  The watercolor images help portray the emotions of the poems–little children would learn a great deal about recognizing emotions in the illustrations in this collection.

I’d recommend this book for a child that will be going on his or her first sleep-over to demonstrate that homesicknesses is a natural response but that an overnight can be an adventure too.
