Wouldn't it be fun to trade places with your pet? A little boy tries the idea on for size with the help of a multilayered outfit and an obliging black dog.
It’s time to get dressed! First the underpants - one paw, then two. It’s a challenge to put on a shirt lying down! A sweater is perfect for peekaboo, then there’s the pants and four socks, and - hold the kisses - the job’s almost done. With fresh, clear colors and flat, simple shapes, Lizi Boyd takes classic child’s play and gives it a funny, tail-wagging twist.

Lizi Boyd, who has written and illustrated numerous books for children, says that while working on some of the drawings for BLACK DOG GETS DRESSED she actually dressed up the family dog, Zuli. "She loved it!" the author-illustrator reports. Lizi Boyd lives with her husband and two sons.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Dressing for the day becomes a game as a little boy follows his morning ritual with a beloved pet. It's Black Dog's turn first, beginning with underwear. Young readers may identify with the problems in the process-"Up, Black Dog. It's too hard to dress you when you're lying down." The willing pup lovingly cooperates for each succeeding layer of clothing until the boy surprises him and dons his own outfit for the day-a black dog costume. Gouache illustrations show uncluttered drawings of the boy and his dog as they play in his bedroom. Stripes, polka dots, and geometric patterns add interest to the simple figures outlined in black. Text placement and division give new readers simple words with ample visual clues. This small book not only names articles of clothing, but also engages children in a game of surprise and pretend that they will find appealing.
