Bailey's Day by Robert Haggerty Illustrated by Bobbi Switzer

This week I was given the pleasure of reviewing my first children's book and it was so much fun.  My 2 year old grandson and I sat down and read the book.  Then he had everyone reading to him about Bailey's Day and he even sat quietly and "read it" himself several times.

Bailey's Day is about a dog who truly "owns" his owner.  Bailey's owner is a mailman and when he sets off to work that's when Bailey's fun begins. He meets his friend, Frankie the wiener dog, and their travels start, the swimming pool, the park, the taco stand.  Bailey has to keep watching for his "Dad" the mailman, so his isn't caught on his adventures.

Bailey is a real dog and is really owned by author/mailman Robert Haggerty.  The book includes several pictures of the real Bailey enjoying his day.  This part of the book was a real hit at our house, owning 2 dogs ourselves, some of the pictures look a little familiar.

This is a truly wonderful children's book.  It is a book that will grow with Kaden as we continue to read it to him and when truly learns to read himself.  This book earns a top rating from Grandma but more importantly it is:

This is Robert Haggerty's first children's book.
