PreS-K. Joining Dog's previous books, including Dog's ABC (2002), this romp begs to be read aloud: WOOF! From wake-up to bedtime, Dog's adventurous day touring a neighboring farm is filled with all kinds of animal noises. The bouncy illustrations--simple shapes outlined in black and digitally colored--and the animals' noises in large, black capital letters guarantee participation. Dog's googly eyes give him jolly character, and his enthusiasm bounds off the pages as he romps with cows, sheep, and even bees. In a satisfying wrap-up, Dog hears his favorite sound--the CLANG, CLANG of a spoon against a plate--his dinner. A delightful choice for preschool story time; the noisy response to the story will surely be, "READ IT AGAIN!"

The capering canine from Dog's Colorful Day (see p. 70) returns in another learning adventure for the preschool set, Dog's Noisy Day: A Story to Read Aloud by Emma Dodd. This time Dog's day brims with onomatopoeic sounds from the "grrrr!" of his stomach to the "cock-a-doodle-dooooo!" of the rooster on a nearby farm. Each noise appears in bold capital letters and exclamation points against a bright, solid backdrop filled with sunny-faced cartoon animals.Review by School Library Journal Reviews
PreS-Gr 1-Dog's third adventure takes him around a barnyard to meet the noisy animals that live there. The adorable pup wakes with a yawn, encounters a songbird outside his window, and becomes excited by the strange sounds he hears: "`COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO!' A rooster crows to wake up the neighboring farm. It certainly works on Dog!- Dog tries to crow like the rooster. `WOOFA, WOOFLE, WOO!'" Children will need little encouragement to make each sound as they enjoy this lively, well-paced story. The simple, digitally enhanced cartoons are done in vivid colors and the animals are all wonderfully expressive. Dog's Noisy Day is perfect to read aloud to a group of any size. Storytime will never sound the same again.-Alison Grant, West Bloomfield Township Public Library, MI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

From the moment when a bird makes its very first chirp in the morning, Dog is on the go as he barks and brays at all the wonderful animals he sees and hears throughout the day.Review by Publisher Summary 4
The clumsy canine star of Dog's Colorful Day is back in a picture-book adventure that will have children barking, braying, chirping, and hooting with laughter. From the moment he hears his first wake-up birdcall, Dog is off on a day full of interesting, irresistible noises. He makes many noisy friends-a rooster and a donkey, cows and pigs-and soon his lopsided ears are full of silly animal sounds too melodious to just listen to-Dog must imitate them as well! With the fresh, brilliantly colored art that gives her books such perfect preschool appeal, Emma Dodd offers another eye-catching and raucous read-aloud hit, starring the irrepressible and charming Dog.
