This fun and exciting book tells about many canine heroes. From Barry the dog who saved lives, to the dog who went and ran the owners company. Definitely a good chuckle for any dog lover.
This book has as many surprises as there are presents under a Christmas tree including a zombie, a lost dog, Christmas slime, a brave, generous camel, a soldier and the family who miss him, Christmas carols, mice caught snitching tinsel from the Christmas tree, and lots of candles and fun. These are short holiday stories and poems to read again and again
Originally published in English as The Teeny Tiny Teacher
From the Book Jacket: What's the best way to meet a dog and make friends? In this book, a dachshund named Harry shows you. Combining expertise and common sense, with an eye to both safety and fun, Harry's advice begins with one simple rule: Always ask the owner, "May I pet your dog?" Stephanie Calmenson, author of Rosie: A Visiting Dog's Story and Shaggy Waggy Dogs (and Others), lives with her husband and Harry the dachshund in New York City.
Created especially for children who are learning to read, this anthology contains renowned works with some of the best-loved characters in children's literature--including Else Holmelund Minarik and Maurice Sendak's Little Bear, Arnold Lobel's Frog and Toad, and the madcap creations of Dr. Seuss. Also included is poetry by Eve Merriam, Lilian Moore and Gwendolyn Brooks; as well as stories, poems, riddles and word games. An American Bookseller Pick of the Lists.
Rosie's puppyhood and early training are documented, then spontaneous scenes of her at work with disabled children and despondent nursing-home residents. Each visit attests to the joy and comfort Rosie brings to others. This is a close-up, valuable, and charming look at the contributions made by working dogs like Rosie
