Hi Friends,

It is time for my weekly book review.   I love doing them for you!

This week, my book review is for a children's book, Dog vs. Cat, written and illustrated by Chris Gall.   This is such a great book.  I keep reading it over and over.   My mom had put it back on the book shelf and here I am with it out again.   Don't you love hearing your favorite stories over and over!!



In this book, a man went to a shelter to get a dog.  At the same time, his wife went to a shelter to get a cat.  They both brought home a pet on the same day!  Can you imagine it?  This is going to be interesting.  Guess what??  They only had one room for their new pets.  Their pets were going to have to learn to share.

Dog and Cat decided to split the room in half.  They would EACH have THEIR OWN area!  Dog's side of the room was really messy.  Cat's side of the room was really clean.  I think there is going to be some conflict don't you!!   They tried to be friendly with each other.  Th…

Hi Friends,

This week, my book review is on "Dog In Charge" written by K. L. Going and illustrated by Dan Santat - a famous Caldecott Award Winner.


It is really important to me to teach my new little sister, Bliss, all about reading.  For this book review, I am taking my book to Bliss's bedroom and read to her.   I love my little sister.

Our book this week, Dog in Charge, is full of surprises.  One thing that is not a surprise is the subject.  It is a book about a dog...oh yeah, I LOVE that.  The book also has cats in it!  I LOVE cats.  Two of the cats look like my cats.  I have a Siamese cat named Rembrandt Blue and a long haired gray cat named Smudge.   Of course I would LOVE a book about cats and dogs.   How could I not?!

The main character is an American Bulldog named "Dog".  I have never heard of a dog named Dog before, have you?  In the first fe…

This week, my book review is on "Ding Dong Gorilla" written by Michelle Robinson and illustrated by Jane Chapman.

Before we talk about the book - I have HUGE-GIGANTIC-EPIC news for you.   I have a new sister.  Her name is Bliss.  I really like her a lot.  She jumps on me sometimes.  My mom tells her not to do that.  She tries to be good.  I am going to help her learn the rules.  When mom is not looking, we will probably rough house though!!!  My mom read the book to us today.  Dad tried to take photos.  There will be some fun photo bloopers on my Facebook page.  Click here if you want to see the BLOOPER PHOTOS.

Our book this week, Ding Dong Gorilla, is a super fun book.  Do you know one of my favorite things is pizza.  I love pizza.  I especially love pizza with a thin crust.  This book is about pizza.   As soon as I heard that, I was especially excited …
