Old Dog Baby Baby

(3) PS Illustrated by Chris Raschka. Told in spare verse, this is a sweet ode to the bond between an old dog and a (human) baby playing on the kitchen floor. Raschka's trademark loose watercolor illustrations capture the affection as Fogliano's lyrical, childlike text emphasizes word repetition and rhyme, begging for multiple reads: "baby fingers / baby toes / 'puppy! puppy!' / baby goes / baby hurry / baby wiggle / 'puppy! puppy!' / baby giggle."
