Dogs

Reading to a friendly dog has become a popular program here at CPL. But you don't have to save your dog reading for that program alone. I bet your own dog would love for you to read to them, especially a book about dogs. The kids department has lots of fiction and non-fiction books on dogs. To keep it short and simple, check out some fun poems in It's About Dogs, Little Dogs Poems, or I Didn't Do it, which offers a irresistible glimpse into your puppy's mind.
