baron Baron Thinks Dogs Are People Too! by Laurie Dean, illustrated by Kevin Collier

From the cover:

Cute and lovable Baron wants a best friend…but in an effort to get his family’s attention, Baron’s lively antics take him in the wrong direction. After being whisked away to doggie school, Baron learns important lessons about behaving himself. But will he ever find the friendship his furry heart longs for?

My thoughts:

For the record, our dog, Scrappy, is pretty sure he’s a person, too. He just wishes we would let him sit at the dinner table.

This is a really cute book for dog-loving kids. All Baron wants is a best friend, and, of course, he finds one. After all, what little boy, or girl for that matter, can resist loving a dog who is playful and friendly and just wants to spend time with them.
