The Doghouse

Have I ever told you how much I LOVE Jan Thomas!!??!  Well - I know I have but I must say it again.  Chloe and I just hooted and howled last night over her latest, The Doghouse.  How can you not LOVE these adorable characters - pig, cow, duck, and mouse!?!?  They are splendid - the books are at the top of my list!  What Chloe loves is that each book kind of builds on a previous one - you will see snippets of What Will Fat Cat Sit On? and A Birthday for Cow tucked in this book.  I use these for story hour and they are instant hits!!  I am telling you - you can check them out, but you will WANT to own them!!!

I enjoyed the humor of your site, and like to have someone like you reccomend books for young children. I will order The Doghouse for my 5 year old granddaughter, as it sounds the type of story she loves.
I too have published a book of ten short stories, which targets the under 8's. Each story also 'builds' on the previous one, and makes good bedtime reading. It may be of interest to you.
