Old Dog Baby Baby
by Julie Fogliano, illustrated by Chris Raschka
Roaring Brook Press, 2018
A beautiful story of an encounter between an old family dog and a crawling baby. Rendered in sparse rhyme alongside loose, color-splashed drawings, reader and listener will remember their first encounter with another living creature. Baby’s curiosity pokes, squeezes, peeks and spies in old dog’s parts, while dog patently allows the baby to explore. They roll together on the kitchen floor until they are all worn out.
A precious story, perfect for naptime.
