Book Sharing Monday:Some dogs do

This is a much loved book by Jez Alborough, great for children over 2 years old.
On the way to school one day, Sid is so full of happiness that he starts to fly. But no one believes him; dogs don't fly. Sid is so upset that no one believes him, until his dad lets him into an amazing secret: some dogs do!

The illustrations are beautiful, too. My 18 month old also loves looking at the pictures.
I love that this book gives the message that dreaming the impossible is perfectly okay and therefore reinforces self-belief.

Which books are you reading with your little ones these days?
I would love for you to share your books with us. Please check out this page for more information about Book Sharing Monday.

  9. Thank you for the review. I just put it on hold at the library.

    I keep forgetting to do the weekly book review because I think it's a wonderful idea. I linked up one of my old ones and I'll try to find a little time to add this into my schedule for the future
