Childrens Book Review: Hound Dog's Haiku: and Other Poems for Dog Lovers by Michael J. Rosen (Goodreads Author), Mary Azarian (Illustrator)

A deft (and dog-loving) poet teams up with a Caldecott-winning artist in a fun, fetching haiku collection for anyone who's ever loved a dog.
A corgi dozes with paws in the air. A bloodhound burrows into a scent. A border collie tracks a herd of cows. A wagging spaniel leaps for joy. In simple, charming haiku, poet Michael J. Rosen portrays twenty beloved dog breeds, from the pug to the Dalmatian to the golden retriever. Complete with interesting facts about each breed and illustrated with Mary Azarian's striking woodcuts, this keepsake volume is sure to set any dog lover's tail a-wagging.

This is a phenomenal book for dog lovers children and adults alike. The book covers a variety of dogs and labels each one which i think is quit neat. The poems are easy to understand and very calming. The illustrations are very well drawn and the colors are realistic. The author does a good job on the content of the book. It is well written and executed very well. I am s glad I got this book for review. My grandson has a dog and this was a great learning tool to all the different dogs that are out there.
A great book for any child's book collection.
