Read Right Now! Dogs


02/20/2020 | Online Storytime

Kids love dogs. Our librarians do too! When asked which book dogs are their favorite for storytime, Harry the Dirty Dog and Bark, George won by a landslide! Harry is the story of a pooch who doesn't want to take a bath. George is about a puppy whose mother can't seem to teach him how to bark. "Meow," says George!

You can see all the librarians' selections below to make bedtime just as much fun as storytime! We have also listed some printable activities to help little readers, who can't get enough puppy love, with their early learning writing skills. Watch the video of Betty White reading Harry the Dirty Dog right now!

You can also use your IndyPL library card to check out e-books and audiobooks from home right to your device. These links will show you all the choices:

IndyPL Librarian Picks: Picture Books for Kids in Puppy Love

Kids love dogs. Our librarians do too! When asked which book dogs are their favorite for story time, Harry the Dirty Dog and Bark, George won by a landslide! Here are some suggestions from them for little readers who can't get enough puppy love. E-books and downloadable audiobooks are available. #indyplkids IndyPL_CarrieW

Bark, George

Kids will laugh out loud when little George opens his mouth and out comes, "meow' or "oink" or "moo." Kids can't correct George fast enough!

Pretzel

Rey, Margret

Pretzel is a lot like Clifford the Big Red Dog, except he's a little puppy that grows into a long, long dog! In fact, he is the longest dog in the world!

Biscuit

Capucilli, Alyssa Satin

Little Biscuit likes a lot of things small children like - snacks, hugs, blankies and hearing a bedtime story.
