Wag a Tail by Lois Ehlert. These hip city dogs and their owners take a walk to the Farmer’s Market. These proud Bow Wow School graduates celebrate their good behavior as they struggle to behave before heading off for a run in the park. This story is told by the dogs in “thought bubbles.” This simple rhyming story has a quality that begs to be read aloud: “Wag a tail./Wag a tail./We know how./Wig Wag Zig Zag/Bow Wow Wow.” Collages composed of brightly colored buttons, scraps of fabric, and handmade paper stand out on vivid green backgrounds. The end papers of the book show the portraits of the dogs introduced with their name. This well-designed book focuses on dogs and life in the city. The author’s note at the end of the book let’s readers in on a secret as to where she got the materials for this book and how she put them together “like a quilt.” See this book listed in our catalog
