Amazon Description

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.

Bravo Henkes and Yaccarino!"

One Potato Review

“Circle dogs snap at the air. Maybe there’s invisible food in the sky.” Ha!
Shapeworthy, but slyly funny also, courtesy of Kevin Henkes, in deadpan mode.

This is our 19 month-old’s current favorite… he asks for this book many times each day, and sweetly kisses the sleeping circle dogs goodnight. Wonderfully illustrated, and very cleverly constructed.
