It's SO hot, this time of summer gets it's own name: Dog Days. Nobody feels like doing much and even the dogs just lie around, panting. There's no better way to chill than to find a shady nook and a cool book! If one of the characters happens to be a dog (or cat or walrus), even better. Here are some titles guaranteed to help you beat the heat.
Dog Days written by Karen English & illustrated by Laura Freeman
If you enjoyed the Nikki and Deja
books, you'll be happy to revisit Carver Elementary with it's newest student, Gavin. He has cool-kid skills – skateboarding and basketball. However, that might not outweigh the humiliation of walking his aunt's "extremely accessorized" pooch. If you've ever felt the heat of making friends and fitting in, this book will assure you that you're not alone.
