From the Back Cover
If you give a dog a donut, he’ll ask for some apple juice to go with it.
When you give him the juice, he’ll drink it all up.
Then, before you can say “Woof” . . . Dog is off on a backyard adventure!
The exuberant dog who first appeared in if you give a pig a party is now the star of his very own book. Written in the irresistible “If You Give…” tradition, if you give a dog a donut is another home run from the beloved team of Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond.
In this If You Give . . . series title, giving a dog a donut results in him asking for a glass of apple juice. But when he asks for more juice and there is none, he’ll have to make his own. An apple reminds him of a baseball, which leads to a baseball game, and so begins a domino effect of associations—until the whole story comes full circle. The peppy, simple narrative is read-aloud friendly, and the cheery cartoonish illustrations depict an animated brown-and-white dog and his indulgent boy companion. Kids will enjoy this entertaining entry in a popular series. Preschool-Grade 2. --Shelle Rosenfeld
