Harry the Dirty Dog

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! 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 of the librarins' selections below so you can make bedtime just as much fun as story time. We have also listed some printable activities to help little readers who can't get enough puppy love with their early learning writing skills.

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. #indyplkids

Bark, George

Feiffer, Jules

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!

Harry, the Dirty Dog

Zion, Gene

Harry does NOT like baths. He runs. He hides the brush, He hides HIMSELF! But when he spends the day having adventures that hide him in DIRT, Harry learns that he loves home, and home is where the bath is!

Say Hello to Zorro!

Goodrich, Carter

Mr. Bud likes his life just the way it is. He likes how he eats. He likes how he goes for walks. And then Zorro appears and Mr. Bud's happy routine life goes right off the rails.
