Dog Books for Kids:
A Giveaway for Early Readers

by Carrie Boyko, CEB

Tanner Shows Off
 Some of Our Collection
Truth be told, I'm part of a book-loving family. Even the dogs enjoy being read to. I know that sounds weird, but it's true. They love the audio books I play when we take a trip! It's almost as soothing to them as Lisa Spector's Through a Dog's Ear CD's for the canine household.


Today's giveaway announcement is for families with early readers. The 4 books I will give to one winner are beginner reading, so they are appropriate for many children from Kindergarten through first or second grade. 


One winner will be chosen by Random.org. To be eligible, you must have a North American address (with the exception of Quebec--their laws are tough for small giveaways like this) and be 18 or older. This offer is void where prohibited.


Subscriptions to All Things Dog Blog are a great way to follow our continuing book and dog product giveaways. You can select email (our most popular option), RSS, Google Friend Connect, or Networked Blogs. If you subscribe in any of these ways you may count this as an entry to win by following up with a comment telling me you have subscribed. Thanks!


If you have a family member or child that would enjoy these books, I'd love to hear from you. Enter daily by comment here (Tweets are appreciated, but must be followed up by a comment to count in the drawing) and tell us about your dogs, your kids and how they enjoy one another. I look forward to your comments. If you want extra credit comments, here's a few ideas:

  • Tweet
  • Retweet
  • Hit the Google+ button (top of the post)
  • Subscribe to our blog
  • Send me a picture of your dog reading or being read to: AllThingsDogBlog@gmail.com.
  • Be sure to register each of these entries with an "I did this" entry in our comments section.
Entries close Thursday, August 11 at 5 PM sharp. I'll announce the winner of the books on late Friday afternoon. See you then!

My youngest son starts Kindergarten this year. We are a homeschool family and we participate in schools and libraries as part of TDI's Tail Waggin' Tutors program. The program thrives on the idea that children progress at better rates when reading to a dog. Each of my older children have learned to read by spending time daily reading to their pets. We love books and dogs and children!! Would love this!

I would love to win these books for my classroom!! I work as a resource room teacher and am always looking for good books to incorporate with my students. Interesting books are the best way to get them involved! My husband yells at me for buying so many books but I try to do anything to get them engaged... and now that I can tell them about Lola it helps to bring the interest in dogs out!
