Children's Book Review for If You Could Ask Your Dog One Question by Kim Messina, Nataliia Pavliuk (Illustrator)

 If You Could Ask Your Dog One  Question by                          Kim MessinaNataliia Pavliuk (Illustrator)

Taken from Goodreads:
  This poetic story about a young girl's struggle to pick the perfect question will warm the hearts of children and their adult readers alike. From "Why do you steal my fuzzy socks?" to "Do I make you happy?", her inquiries highlight quirky dog behaviors while exposing the profound love that she feels for her pet. With a delightful rhythm, and charmingly sweet scenes hand-painted by Nataliia Pavliuk, this work will resonate with all who have opened their hearts to a furry friend.

 My Thoughts:   If You Could Ask Your Dog One Question is a cute book with wonderful illustrations.  As an adult, I enjoyed the thoughtful wording and adorable pictures that went with each question.  With each page, I took a second to think about the question this young girl was contemplating asking her dog and realized that her questions were thoughtful and interesting. Anyone who has a pet has asked their pet these questions.

This is a children’s book and I am excited to add it to a first-year teacher’s library for her to share with her students as they embark on their learning adventure.  

Thank you Author Marketing Experts for a copy of the book via the author in exchange for my honest review.
