Dog Books

What is it about dogs? Many of the teachers I work with have dogs and adore their pets. I admit I am not a dog fanatic (sorry...I will pet dogs, hug them and talk to them but have no desire to own one). Along with loving dogs, I've noticed the appeal for dog stories among the primary teachers as well as the kids. I am hoping the kids will help me create a basket of dog stories for our classroom library. I am thinking my dog and animal lovers will really enjoy this basket! Here are a few I have in mind. What am I missing?

Bad Dog Marley by John Grogan
Unloveable by Dan Yaccarino
Let's Get a Pup! Said Kate By Bob Graham
Bark George! By Jules Feiffer
Why Do I have to eat off the floor? By Chris Hornsey
Polly Molly Woof Woof By David Llyod
Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion
Good Dog Carl By Alexandra Day

What about Walter The Farting Dog?

(Ok- it is gross, but a very funny book!)

How about Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy by Lynley Dodd, The Hallo-Wiener by Dav Pilkey, Miss Bindergarten, Clifford? Just a few ideas from my bookshelf.

The Great Gracie Chase is classic. Arthur's New Puppy or Pet? can't remember the real title. The Old Woman Who Named Things. Children love dogs, I am a dog lover and am always amazed at what they write about and read about. You might even want to get some nonfiction titles for the basket too. Perhaps books about how to care for a dog, what to look for when choosing, etc.
