50 Books About Dogs

50 fun books about dogs

Since my boys returned to school a few weeks ago I have found myself with hours of alone time with my 3-year-old. I love having all this one on one time with her, but I also wanted to get her into preschool. After a search of available preschools in my area I decided to hold off on preschool for one more year and keep her home with me. I wanted to give her a fun preschool like experience through out the week because she was starting to feel left out that everyone else went to school except for her. I’m keeping things very relaxed so that I don’t get burned out. We have a weekly theme and have fun doing a few art projects about the theme, but mostly we read. Read and read and read. It’s been so fun.

Last week our theme was dogs. My daughter loves dogs, but she mostly loves pugs. You’ll notice there are quite a few pug books in this list for that reason.

Here are our favorite dog books. Have fun reading!
