What an exciting life Dog leads - it's the opposite of dull! For example, he gets caught out in a heavy rainstorm and ends up dripping wet. His owner Vicky is able to stay dry in her waterproofs. The weather is much nicer when Dog goes to the beach, where he runs and jumps over a rock pool. Later, he goes for a nap under an apple tree. It's peaceful and quiet in the garden... that is, until a noisy donkey turns up! Not all of Dog's friends are so big. Some are small, like a crab, a bird and some bees. At the end of the book, Dog gets another soaking. He is dirty after rolling around in the mud, so Vicky makes him clean again by giving him a bath. With appealing images to look at and talk about, this book is a wonderful aid to learning that little ones will want to return to again and again. It is built to last, with sturdy board pages that will stand up to repeated use. Learn about opposites with the playful pooch and his human and animal pals. Watch Dog getting wet through in the rain, and his owner Vicky coming to bring him home, nice and dry under her umbrella. Compare a noisy donkey going 'Heee haww!' and a quiet flowerbed visited by gently buzzing bees. See Dog jump over a crab at the seaside and lie under a bird in a tree - and other entertaining opposites. With endearing illustrations, this book has been carefully planned to help little ones make the important connection between words and their meanings. Ideal for looking at with small children, or for more confident readers to enjoy by themselves. CLICK HERE TO READ THE WHOLE BOOK IN DIGITAL FORM
