Wonder Dogs!

by Linda Ashman (Author) Karen Obuhanych (Illustrator)

Wonder Dogs!
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

This tender and humorous picture book is an ode to all dogs do, from the extraordinary to the everyday.


They catch and carry, search and save, Inspect and guide-- They're smart and brave! Next to these amazing dogs, everyday pooches like Butters might not look like much--he drools, he sheds, he hogs the bed. But he also listens close, and keeps us warm, and offers comfort in a storm. He's a wonder dog, too, and his superpower is loving you!
