Lyle, Lyle Crocodile: Lyle Walks the Dogs by Bernard Waber illus by Paulis Waber

Lyle, Lyle Crocodile: Lyle Walks the Dogs

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 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.   


  1. I haven't read a Lyle in awhile..., but I'll have to get reacquainted the next time I'm at a bookshop or at the library.
    We had some good times in the children's department, didn't we?!?

  2. yes we did....I have the newspaper clipping Mom saved it.
