Meet Bailey, a dog who surprises and charms his fellow human classmates with his irrepressible antics. In this funny new book from the bestselling children’s illustrator Harry Bliss, school proves to be an unexpected place for Bailey to do all sorts of things he loves: reading, fetching, painting, digging, singing — and making friends!
Loved it! Follow Bailey through a day headed to school with the neighborhood kids, but with unique challenges that only a dog would meet. The illustrations are cute and the story isn’t your typically kids book drivel; it’s got spunk! Here’s what I like best about Bailey. It’s a cute read, straight up. But all the little comic strip type story additions will allow this book to grow with us over time. Once Jack starts reading and his sense of humor matures, he’ll be able to contribute to the reading and get the (relatively) more complex jokes in the book. In the meantime, my husband I were laughing over the little asides peppered throughout (i.e. Bailey’s preoccupation with squirrels). We – and Jack – are absolute dog lovers so it’s a subject that holds our attention for sure. We loved Bailey and it’ll be part of our nightly reading routine for many years to come. I just know you’ll enjoy it!
BUY IT! A copy of Bailey by Harry Bliss is available from The Scholastic Store for $11.89.
