Book Review: Do You Have a Dog? by Eileen Spinelli

Do you have a Dog? is a lively book that makes for a great read-a-loud while also offering a bit of a history lesson about famous people and their dogs. I liked the rhyming text overall though some of the rhythm felt a bit off. The illustrations were fluid and cheerful with a constant sense of movement and activity. The only negative is that without the helpful text, it was very difficult to distinguish between any of the breeds. I would have liked the pug to look more like a pug and the boxer to look more like a boxer. As it was, they just looked like loveable mutts. Overall, I enjoyed the book, and I see it being popular with children and those that read to them.
