What Dog Knows

What dog knowsThis interesting mix of fiction and nonfiction introduces cousins Wolf and Dog and topics such as Mummies and skeletons; Robots; Knights and pirates; Dinosaurs and dragons; and Rockets and the moon. Dog reads books and is curious and knowledgeable. Wolf is wild and is not so smart. He relies on Dog to tell him things. The funny conversations between Wolf and Dog are interspersed with fact-filled information sections, quizzes, rhymes, and craft activities to try. Quirky full-page, full-color illustrations and speech bubbles complement the text in this chapter book for inquisitive independent readers. mjw
