Dogs By Emily Gravett
Today, my friend Maureen shared with me some of the new books she found book shopping. Her stack was a gold mine! She had two books that I just have to add to the beloved "Dog and Cat" basket. One of them is by a favorite author of mine, Emily Gravett. Gravett's book, is a perfectly written primary book with gorgeous pictures, simple, repetitive text and a bit of a surprise ending. This book fits right into the hands of K-1 readers and will make an excellent mentor text. You will enjoy every minute of Dogs!
