    Perfect book for beginning the year in first grade. Story of friendship between a boy and his dog with a circular ending. Love

    Fans of Good Dog, Carl may enjoy this silly tale of a dog trying to keep a baby out of harm's way only to get himself in trouble. I liked that every part of this book seemed to be used to tell the story.

    Age: Baby-ToddlerNearly wordlessA sweet buddy book about Jojo the dog and a his pal, the baby. Happy to help, Jojo hears the baby screaming "out!" from his crib. Eventually clambering his way out of the crib, Jojo and the baby get into all sorts of hijinks around the house. Just a few words throughout invite the reader to talk more about the pictures.

    A clever little boy and his faithful dog get into all kinds of antics in the middle of the night, but the dog is always the one who gets blamed. The story is told in very few words but lots of descriptive pictures in the format of a graphic novel. Along the lines of Nope! this book encourages lots of dialogue as it is being read.

    Yep, this kind of thing pulls my heartstrings. It's catnip for me for sure.

    Reminded me of Good Dog, Carl by Alexandra Day. Cute book although I like Carl better. (Nearly wordless.)

    I didn't feel like the dog kept the baby safe. It just seemed like a dark spooky story. Perhaps I'm overly sensitive because my nephew died in his sleep in his crib.

    Nearly wordless. In the vein of Good Dog, Carl.
