From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Moser knows dogs, and his three-year-old granddaughter, Isabelle, loves them-in particular, his Rottweiler Rosie (short for "Franklin Roosevelt"). While the artist works at his drawing board, visiting Isabelle cares for (and is good-naturedly tolerated by) Rosie. From feeding him Friskies cat(!) food to bathing him to reading him his favorite book (Carl Goes Shopping by Alexandra Day, of course), Isabelle does not let the dog alone for a minute. Moser's exuberant watercolors capture canine and child expressions and physical relationship to a tee. A final illustration has the napping dog and girl peacefully sharing a quilt. Isabelle's brief narration is just enough to lead readers from page to glorious page. This one will have the picture book set begging for Rosies of their own.

From Booklist:

Ages 2-4. Isabelle Harper, given author credit here, is no doubt an unfamiliar name to readers. That's because she's Moser's three-year-old granddaughter, proving, one supposes, that anyone can write a children's book. There's not much to this one, though the goings-on will strike a familiar chord with an audience of Harper's peers. When Grandpa (Moser) goes to work in his studio, Isabelle takes care of Rosie the rottweiler: "I feed him his breakfast"; "I read him his favorite story (Carl Goes Shopping); and after that, I take him outside to play." The pictures, which use the real-life Isabelle, Moser, and Rosie as models, feature snow-white backgrounds and large figures, one or two to a page; they're attractive and appealing. A good choice for toddler story times--short text, big pictures. Ilene Cooper
