Chip Wants a Dog

We’ve got dogs at my house. Real dogs. Stuffed dogs. Dogs in books. Dogs on the walls. Dogs on the shelves. We big dogs even have our own dogs –

Do you have your own dog? If not, would you like to have your own dog? Are your dreams filled with dogs?

We recently found another great book from Mr William Wegman about a young guy who wants his very own dog.

Electra really liked this book!

Chip Wants a Dog
by William Wegman
published by Penguin Young Readers in 2014
a Level 2/Guided Reading Level H

It begins –
Dogs!
Dogs! Dogs! Dogs!
Chip thinks about dogs.
Chip reads about dogs.
Chip dreams about dogs.
Chip wants a dog!

This is a hilarious book! Chip wants a dog! Chip IS a dog!! But he wants his own dog for a friend. He thinks about all of the things that he and his dog could do together. They would be best friends. But his parents don’t want a dog. His mom is a cat person. ARF! ARF!!

What’s a fellow with big dreams to do?!

I won’t tell you what happens in the end! It’s a big surprise! You’ll have to read the book yourself and find out!

This book had me rolling on the floor. Electra didn’t get it. Walker had his own dream going on.

This week, May 12 – 18, is Children’s Book Week. A week to celebrate “books for young people and the joy of reading.” This is the 95th anniversary of this celebration!!! 95 years! I would like to know what books were celebrated 95 years ago. And think about all the books since then! Wow! Mind boggling!

CBW_Poster-smallYou can find out more about Children’s Book Week by clicking on the poster above.

Every week is a Children’s Book Week for me, but it’s nice to spread the celebrations around.

Check out Mr Wegman’s websites HERE and HERE.

I’ll leave you with a bit of Mr Wegman himself — enjoy!

I hope that your week is filled with Picture Books and dreams that come true!
