Circle Dogs by Kevin Henkes. Illustrated by Dan Yaccarino, 32 pages, hardcover/paperback. Greenwillow Books, 1998. Ages 4 and up.
The circle dogs live in a big, square house with a big, square yard. See the dogs? See the circles? Mama calls them pooches. Papa calls them hounds. "I'm a dog!" says Big Sister. Baby is, too. And even the youngest reader will want to wiggle and bounce and dig through the day with the circle dogs....until it is time for bed. An inspired collaboration, a new take on simple shapes, a story to read again and again.
