"A sweet treat for dog lovers." --Kirkus Reviews
A beautiful picture book that illustrates the relationship between a young girl and her canine best friend, written and illustrated by publishing legend Joanna Cotler.
If I were a dog . . .
I'd be silly or patient,
or happy or shy.
Sometimes I'd be grumpy.
Sometimes I'd be playful.
Just like me.
In a celebration of both what it means to be a dog and what it means to be human, If I Were a Dog shows us how much we all have in common--with each other, and with our animal friends.
