I'm going to be really honest here. I don't know if it's strange to feel guilty about this or not but...I've never read a book to my dog.
I love to read. I read a lot. I even read about dogs a lot. But never to my dog. YET!
You might say this omission in my interactions with Kelly is possibly due to lack of appropriate reading material. But now, I can use that excuse no more! Bruce Littlefield has written what I believe is the first book written just for dogs: The Bedtime Book for Dogs.
The story follows the adventures of a pup who decides he'd rather take a walk to the park by himself than wait for his human companion--and discovers that all of his usual activities aren't as much fun without a good friend to share them with. And, in case you think it's simply a cute story about a little dog, there's more to it than that. The book is told with the 20 most common words that dogs can recognize, such as "treat" "squirrel" and "Good dog!"

I think Kelly would like this book. And I'd love reading it to her, too.
