First time author, Linda Diesing, has created a fun-filled look into the day of the family pets. Two furry canines romp through the pages of this book sharing their day, and answering the question: What Do Dogs Do When You Go Off to School?.

What Do Dogs Do When You Go Off to School?, is a delightful book that will quell your wonderings with the playful illustrations of the humorous antics of the beloved family dogs’ day.

The adventures of our furry friends are told in a lyrical style with a simple question posed as to the dogs’ activities. Do they make their own food? Do they clean the house? Do they play with the cat? Young readers will enjoy coming-up with their own questions about how dogs might spend their day as they engage with this charming book.

The illustrations, with their bold strokes of color, and playful depictions of our furry friends will amuse and delight the young reader. With incredible detail in her illustrations, artist Rachel Rodkey, has personified for us the decidedly human adventures of these cuddly canines.

Appealing to a wide-range of readers, What Do Dogs Do When You Go Off to School?, is a clever and engaging story for all. One you will want to read and share again and again.

What does your pet do when you are off to school, or work, or play?
