Old Dog Baby Baby by Julie Fogliano- ADVISABLE

Fogliano, Julie. Old Dog Baby Baby, PICTURE BOOK. A Neal Porter Book, 2016. $17.99. 

An old dog lounges near the kitchen table, when in crawls a little baby. Baby pokes and prods the old dog and they give kisses, roll around and play. After they tumble, both yawn and fall asleep snuggling. The real winner in this story is the artwork. 

It is done by Chris Raschka and reflects the snuggly comfort of baby and dog together perfectly. The fact that this is written in simplistic verse is definitely a positive to get the feel of the story across.
