Dog Loves Books by Louise Yates

You are never too old to enjoy a great picture book.  My manager brought this one to my attention the other day, saying "insert our names in here".  I read it, and immediately fell in love with this wonderful  little book.  Dog Loves Books by Louise Yates is about a dog who loves to read books.  He loves them so much, he decides to open a bookstore.  But, no one comes to his store!

Not knowing what to do, Dog turns to books for comfort.  He gets so involved in his reading, he almost doesn't realize a little girl has come into his store to buy a book!  He not only loves books, but loves to share them, and he does that with the little girl.

This is a great book for  kids and adults.  It reminds you just what it is about books that keeps you coming back for more.  And for those of us who have made a career out of expressing that love for books, it is a priceless addition to our picture book collections.  It perfectly captures that feeling I have about books and reading.  And, the illustrations are very sweet.
