Meow and woof, everyone, it’s Cosmo the Library Cat!

Not long ago I recommended some good cat books available at the Grand County Public Library, so I thought it was only fair that I discuss books about dogs, too.

Here are a few children’s books recommended by library staff: “Good Dog Carl” by Alexandra Day tells the story of a giant but gentle rottweiler, Carl, who babysits a human while her mother is away, even cleaning up after he’s put the baby to bed!

If you want to read about a digging dog who makes messes everywhere, you’ll like “A Dog Named Doug” by Karma Wilson.

“Some Dogs Do” by Jez Alborough is about a dog who can fly (thank goodness that’s not actually possible)!

“City Dog Country Frog” by Mo Willems tells of the touching friendship between a dog and a frog.

“Stormy” by Guojing is a beautiful, heartwarming picture book about a stray dog finding a home.

Everyone loves “Because of Winn Dixie” by Kate Dicamillo, a story about a girl named Opal and a stray dog she adopts.

Another library favorite is a graphic novel titled “Bear” by Ben Queen about the crazy adventures of a sweet and clever seeing eye dog.

There are so many good books about dogs to choose from. Just keep your hankie nearby because dog books can make some people feel very sentimental and sometimes even shed a tear! My tears, on the other hand, were strictly caused by allergies.

Remember to treat all your animal friends with kindness and we’ll love you back double. Meow-ruff for now friends!
