Children's books about dogs

I am wanting to buy my nieces and nephews some books for Christmas about dogs.

Do you have any suggestions for age 7 and under?

Re: Children's books about dogs

My 6yo and I just read Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy last night. This is about Nancy (who uses "fancy" words) who wants a Pappillon puppy (bcuz they are fancy) and so she borrows her neighbors Pappillon for the day. She realizes that this fancy dog is not right for her family, so they end up going to the animal shelter and getting a perfect dog for them there! It was cute with nice underlying messages of adopting from a shelter.

There is also a line of books called Walter, the farting dog. Sounds gross, but they are cute and have GREAT learning tools for kids and moral messages. My daughter (who thinks farting is gross) likes them.

The 12 Dogs of Christmas I believe was written by a 7year old!!

John Grogan, who wrote Marley and Me wrote Bad Dog, Marley for kids and also A Very Marley Christmas

Bedtime Stories for Dogs by Leigh Anne Jasheway is cute.

Re: Children's books about dogs

We have another book at home...something about a stray dog and christmastime, it is a chapter book but we started reading it...I cannot remember what it is called. I'll see if I can find it today online, if not I'll look at home tonight and let you know what it is called tomorrow.

Re: Children's books about dogs

My kids all love Chewie Louie, a puppy who chews on everything 'He ate all the food in the bowl, then he ate the bowl'. It's pretty funny and always has my kids saying 'That puppy needs a crate!'

Santa Paws Here it is!! It is sad cuz the dog spends nights alone in the cold snow after he loses his mom but I am hoping it all turns out ok in the end.

Re: Children's books about dogs

I bought this book for my niece Rylee for our ride to Maine to pick up Titan back in late September. It was cute, I remember reading the same story about a little lamb when I was a kid. I also saw at Barnes & Noble they have a kids series like Marley & Me. Marley & Me kids books And even a Christmas one... A Very Marley Christmas

Re: Children's books about dogs

This was given to me by my granddaughters and I treasure it!
(and I am 61)
It is about a german shepherd and a duckling.
The only bad thing is you may want to keep it for yourself.

Re: Children's books about dogs

when i was little my favorite book was Harry the Dirty Dog. i believe he's a Westie mutt that escapes and gets so filthy during his around town adventures that when he returns home his family doesnt recognize him but adopts him anyway and to their surprise after a bath - their loving dog has made it home.
