This happy little book is bright and colourful, with big letters and visual interpretations of the words it teaches, such as “sit!” and “stay!”
I also love that “our dog” doesn’t have a name, so the littlies can insert their own dog’s name.
How clever is your dog? Not as clever as ours. He knows words!
Meet our very clever dog. He always knows just what we’re saying to him. He knows, but does he always obey?
Our Dog Knows Words, from father and daughter dog lovers Peter and Lucy Gouldthorpe, is a funny story about a clever (but not always obedient) dog.
From playing in the park to dinnertime, bath time and bedtime – this very smart dog knows what’s going on!
If you loved The Complete Guide to a Dog’s Best Friend, Henry the Dirty Dog and Hairy Maclary then you will adore Our Dog Knows Words.
