Dogs Don't Brush Their Teeth!

Dogs Don't Brush Their Teeth!
by Diane deGroat and Shelley Rotner
unpaged picture book with fold-out pages
New York : Orchard Books, 2009

Finally, an etiquette book for your canine pal! Essentially this is a wordless picture book. The only text is "Dogs Do" and "Dogs Don't". The book creators combined photography with digital art to illustrate some pretty hilarious situations. Dogs Don't Brush Their Teeth provides a great opportunity for young children to "tell" the story in their own words as they describe what is happening on each page. My three-year-old son couldn't stop laughing as he read this book over and over and over again. In fact, I had to sneak it out of the house to return it to the library!
