Dog wants to play. When? Today!

But no one will play with Dog. Not the chick or the lamb, the calf or the pig. Poor Dog! Isn't there one playmate who will play with Dog all day long? With its structure of rhyme and repetition, this is the perfect book to prepare children for reading, and Jeff Mack's exuberant and funny pictures will keep them turning the pages to enjoy the fun.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "One look at the appealing cover will entice the reader to join the perky, brown and white puppy, whose paw rests upon a big blue ball and whose expression clearly telegraphs his desire: it's time to play, and now! Told in intermittent rhyme ('I'm too small,' says the chick. 'Find another to pick'), the story involves a series of barnyard animals turning down the puppy's offer: the kitten declines, the lamb is too shy, the pig wants to dig, the calf just laughs, and so on. Poor Dog. But wait there's one more to ask. 'Yes,' says the child, I love to be wild. I'll play. . . . All day! Textured, sun-kissed painted images put bounce into the simple story and capture Dog's realistic body poses. Preschoolers will understand Dog's dilemma, and on a second reading, sharp eyes will catch glimpses of the boy in the background of the scenes leaving clues to the perfect playmate.--Cummins, Julie Copyright 2009 Booklist"
