(Hu)mans' Best Friend

Woof! If you joined us for storytime this week, you learned all about (hu)man's best friend, the dog! Here are some great stories about canines:
Good Boy, Fergus by David Shannon
Buster by Denise Fleming (a little long for my story-time audience--mostly 3-year olds--but a cute story)
Bark, George by Jules Feiffer
How to be a Good Dog by Gail Page.
A Dog Needs a Boneby Audrey Wiood

And, of course, the classic Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion

There are also some cute activities you could play with kids. Why not put them through a "puppy training" class where they have to learn how to sit, stay, lie down, roll over, etc.? Or pretend that a puppy has hidden a bunch of socks and the kids have to help find them?

Our craft was this dog mask from Enchanted Learning. I'm pretty proud of the way mine turned out!
