My Favorite Animal: Dogs

Recently, we had the opportunity to read and review My Favorite Animal: Dogs by Victoria Marcos.  Having a 5 and 8 year old, they fit perfectly into the suggested 4-8 age range.  Although my 8 year old was able to follow along perfectly, this book is quite advanced for a 5 year old.  I really feel like the suggested age range should be more like 7-12.  Even though there is a glossary in the back of the book, we had to stop every few words to explain what they meant - which made my little ones eyes gloss over quite quickly!

The photography is the book is adorable - I'm pretty sure that's what my 5 year old enjoyed the most!  I loved being prompted every few pages to ask reading comprehension questions - which often led to us discussing even more about what we just read.

In all, it's a great summary of some general aspects about dogs, I just would definitely recommend adjusting the age range a tad!
