Description


"With its airy illustrations and reassuring message, this is a book to gladden 3- to 7-year-olds."--The Wall Street Journal
 
A beautiful picture book that illustrates the relationship between a young girl and her canine best friend, written and illustrated by publishing legend Joanna Cotler.


If I were a dog . . .
I'd be silly or patient,
or happy or shy.
Sometimes I'd be grumpy.
Sometimes I'd be playful.
Just like me.

In a celebration of both what it means to be a dog and what it means to be human, If I Were a Dog shows us how much we all have in common--with each other, and with our animal friends.
 
Praise for If I Were a Dog:
