In this rollicking and warm picture book, rhyming couplets catalog things that a puppy-person and his mother enjoy over the course of a day, such as hiding places and wild chases, and read-alouds and sunset clouds. Schmidt's double-page watercolor illustrations are effective from a distance and depict this active pair with vigorous and varying perspectives. They sing, jump, hug, and have fun together right up till bedtime. While literal-minded young listeners may wonder how that little guy can read a big chapter book or where the hiding places and park slides are since they're not depicted, the overwhelming energy of the book prevails. Preschoolers will relate to London's selection of cheerful activities and will no doubt want to add things they love to do with their moms.

About the Author:

JONATHAN LONDON is the author of more than forty books for children, including the beloved Froggy books. He lives in Sonoma County, California.

KAREN LEE SCHMIDT has illustrated several picture books, including Going to the Zoo and The Jungle Baseball Game. She divides her time between New York and Montana.

From Booklist:

Ages 2-5. This sweet story follows a mother dog and her son through a day of joyous activities. Prompted by the question "What do you love?" the frisky pup tells all in a bouncy, rhyming text: "Park slides and piggyback rides, mud pies and Mommy's eyes . . ." The question is asked and answered three more times, with some of the replies indicating the passage of time. Youngsters will like paging through Schmidt's adorable watercolors and seeing the fun-loving mother and son engaged in a variety of familiar activities. The pictures, too, nicely depict the progression from day to dusk to night, with bright sunshine and robust activity giving way to moonlit walks and quiet talks. A good bedtime story to end a busy day. Lauren Peterson
