It’s hard to know what this creature is–is it a dog, or something else?–but as Dog investigates, he may come to appreciate his loud, silly new sibling. She does drop food on the ground, after all.

With Dog’s First Baby, Natalie Nelson captures the wonder and humor of a new family member through a dog’s eyes. Sure to delight kids and dog parents alike, this board book promises to be a repeat readaloud.
