Oh, doggy lovers, this one is just too cute! Odd Dog Out will bring joy to your young readers and encourage them to be confident as they go through life marching to their own beat.
I received a copy of Odd Dog Out from Abigail at Wunderkind in exchange for a review.
What I love about Odd Dog Out:
~ The adorableness of the illustrations! You need to check out this book. There is only one type of dog-weiner dogs-and they are so cute. The bright colors on each page appeal to me as well. The odd dog out stands out from the crowd and is easy to identify.
~ The simple rhyming text perfectly tells the story and matches the illustrations.
~ The message of being comfortable in your own skin, marching to your own drum, and feeling confident in yourself rings through loud and clear.
~ The variety of doggies at the end, all uniquely expressing themselves, is a great ending (SORRY, spoiler alert!)
~ The appropriateness for young readers (4-8 years old, Preschool-3rd grade).
~ The clever wordplay.
A heartwarming and poignant story from award-winning creator Rob Biddulph about the power of embracing your true colors. Perfect for fans of Peter Brown’s Tiger Goes Wild.
It’s a dog’s life in the big, busy city, but there’s one lonely pup who doesn’t quite fit in. She behaves differently from the rest, sports rainbow in a sea of gray, and marches to the beat of her own drum.
She’s one Odd Dog.
Join Odd Dog as she journeys to the other side of the world to find her place in it, only for her to discover that maybe she’s meant to be right where she started.
