Hi, Stephen Shaskan! Thanks for dropping by Watch. Connect. Read. First of all, congratulations on your new picture book, A Dog is a Dog. I've read it to two kindergarten classes and one first-grade class. It enchanted every audience. You could hear giggles and laughter throughout the library---a sure sign of a successful read-aloud.
Thank you for answering my students' questions. They will be thrilled to read your responses.
