This is an adorable and informative book for young children about dogs. There's information on how to approach and get used to new dogs, while keeping those dogs safe and comfortable as well. It talks about some of the dogs Gideon has met, some famous dogs, and even how to care for a dog if you're looking to adopt! It also has interactive pages as well, so you can keep track of all the dogs you've pet! This will be a perfect addition to our K-5th library collection as it is not just a cute and a fun read for elementary school children, but also highly informative. If your kid or student loves dogs, get this book!

Thanks to Quirk Books for sending me a free digital galley in exchange for feedback. Oh, this is just adorable. I've followed Gideon Kidd's "I've Pet That Dog" on social media for years, and I love his wide-eyed enthusiasm for dogs. He and his mother have done a great job of bringing that energy to this book. The target audience here is kids around Kidd's age, with information about how to be a good dog-petter, stories about exceptionally good dogs, and a section at the end where kids can put notes about dogs they have petted. Kidd has a lot of adult fans who are also going to love the book for the same reasons that they love his web site. The illustrations are really cute, and I regret that I read it on a black-and-white Kindle. I'll have to make a point of finding it in print when it comes out, because I'd like to see the pictures in color.

This is a nice book for a child who would like to know more about dogs especially if they think that they want one. This title includes wonderful information on choosing and caring for a dog along with information on famous service dogs. Children will enjoy completing the fun checklist when meeting different types of dogs.
