Lyle, Lyle Crocodile: Lyle Walks the Dogs by Bernard Waber illus by Paulis Waber
I have been dog sitting my brother's dog for the past few days. Little Bear is a cute little Yorkie Poo who is really sweet. I hate leaving him home when I need to go out. My sister said "welcome to parenthood".
I love going on walks with him because for a little dog he can really move. When I saw that Bernard Waber had come out with a new Lyle book about walking dogs I felt it was kismet....I love Lyle! Lyle has always been one of my favorite characters. No matter what kind of day I was having as a kid if I read my Lyle book I felt better. He makes me smile.
Lyle, Lyle Crocodile: Lyle Walks the Dogs by Bernard Waber and illustrated by Paulis Waber (his daughter) is a great addition to the Lyle series of books. It is written for the younger child but still captures the character we know and love. It is a great counting book too!
When I was in the stores we sometimes did school visits. I remember going to a school with my co-worker and friend Lindsay where we read Lyle books. She was a trooper because as I read she sat there dressed as Lyle....it was a very big and heavy costume that was also very hot to wear. The kids loved it and that made it worthwhile.
No matter what Lyle is a great classic character and this is a great book to add to the collection.
