Amos: The Story of an Old Dog and His Couch
Howie Schneider, author
Susan Seligson, illustrator
My children and I met Amos recently and fell in love. We have an old dog who would love to have an old couch like Amos's. This is a terrific story/read aloud, and preschool/kindergarten children will love it. I liked the use of color in this book; like many older picture books, only certain parts of the images are colored. The colors are perfect, though, and enhance Amos's story quite well. Check this out from your local library this summer, especially if you have an old dog in your life!
