A book for the animal lovers who like to read aloud – My Dog Bigsy

My Dog Bigsy

Ever met a small dog who thinks he is the boss? Well that is Bigsy. This peppy pup is perfect for teaching animal sounds with a story that kids will enjoy more as they grow.

Australia’s award-winning author and illustrator Alison Lester has delivered another gem in her latest picture book, My Dog Bigsy. This is a story made for reading out loud, which makes it ideal for toddlers and preschoolers who are still finding their words.

My Dog Bigsy

Our hero, Bigsy, wakes up early and goes around the farm interacting with all the animals. Through his adventures we learn about animal sounds and a variety of different doggy sounds too. Not just your regular farm animals, but some unique to Australia like cockatoos and kangaroos.

As always, Alison has a beautiful balance of words and images that flow easily and are not too overwhelming. The illustrations have a fabulous mix of textures and minimalist character design. The cover has a raised pattern that makes it wonderful to feel, while inside the cover there is a fun map of Bigsy’s farm. It’s little touches like these that make this such a dynamically playful read.
