Read full description of the books Dog in Charge:Dog is loved by his owner who has him sit, stay and even dance. When the family leaves for the day they leave dog in charge of the house and his 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 feline companions. Will he be able to keep these cats in line?
This book is, for all intents and purposes, about love. A dog is loved by his owner and tries to love the cats he's left in charge of the same way. When that doesn't work for the cats dog gets into trouble himself. This causes the cats to want to help dog as they love him too! I love the idea of this! My problem such as it is was that the story is a little too simple to support the large idea. I had to ponder the story all evening to really get what the book was about. I don't think my nephew got the point at all.
The illustrations were charming! They were much more complex than at first appears so my nephew who likes to draw a spread from each book we read was hard pressed to find one that he could even manage. He did it but he struggled and it became less fun. His favorite spread was in the flyleaf of the dog's varied expressions. The illustrations also had mini-search and finds to locate the cat in each scene which was really neat.
We enjoyed the language used, there were many action words like "splash!" and the counting was cute too. We also liked that dog talked to the cats too. There is so much going on with this book there is much to pour over and focus on each time it is read!
BOTTOM LINE: A unique way to explain differences to a child.
