Ten Picture Books for Bouncing Boys
by Kitty Griffin

Here we are into Thanksgiving week, so I offer you ten picture books that boys have chose to read to my dog.

Yes. You read that correctly. I have a therapy dog and one thing she does is go into schools and libraries so kids can read to her.

Here are books that BOYS have chose from library shelves to read out loud. 

Enjoy! Woof woof!

The "Fly Guy" books remain a favorite for young readers.

Dog books are always a favorite.

This is a favorite over in England and Ireland, too so I'm told.

Oh, David! 

This one is very silly.

Yes, sometimes they think it's silly to read about a cat to a dog.

These "Who Would Win" fight books are actually a nice introduction into nonfiction.

Oh, the Elephant and Piggie books are a huge hit. I think I know all of the stories.

Ha! A boy and his bot, 'nuff said.

Sometimes we even get to hear the classics.
