Dog’s First Christmas

A Board Book

About the Book

The follow up to the beloved board book Dog’s First Baby!

Dog and Baby explore the delightful and puzzling ways their family prepares for Christmas.

See these branches? They’re not for tugging.
See this ball? It’s not for fetching.

It’s the holiday season, and Dog smells a change in the air. With his new friend Baby by his side, Dog explores the many curious occurrences in his house–like a tree in the living room, new and delicious scents, and fragile balls that are not for fetching–as he gets into the Christmas spirit with his family.
