Me: Okay Gwennie! Tell all of our nice readers what the book is about and what you thought of it.
Gwennie: Well the book is about a teacher who walks into a classroom that has a lot of smelly, dirty foul….
Me: Gwennie! Let’s leave out unnecessary adjectives.
Gwennie: (Sigh) Fine. The teacher walks into a classroom and finds out that her students are dogs. It’s a good thing they came to school because dogs are naturally stupid.
Me: Let’s let the readers of the book come to their own interpretations.
Gwennie: Fine. The teacher comes into the classroom and finds out that her students are dogs of all different breeds and each breed is a different size with different colors. The teacher speaks in rhyme as she introduces each of them and identifies what breed they are.
Me: Anything else?
Gwennie: The pictures in the book are very pretty and colorful and depict – I said depict Momma. –
Me: Yes. You’re very smart.
Gwennie: They depict the doggies in different outfits. The only thing awful about this book is that nowhere in it does it mention how extraordinary I am. Also there are no pictures of my fluffy belly.
Me: That’s because it’s not about you.
Gwennie: Whatever. Anyway, I really like the rhyming and it was very clean. There were no swear words anywhere in the book like there are in your blog.
Gwennie: Momma! I’m just saying that it’s age appropriate for children of all ages because Aunt Sheri doesn’t cuss like you.
Gwennie:What?! You swear more than boy-dadda and he’s a sailor. I think you even made him blush a few times.
Me: Gwendolynn Anne Marie Stefani Collins Silver!
Me: Ha! Ha! – Wait. When did you learn German?
Gwennie: I Googled it.
Me: Of course you did.
Gwennie: May I continue?
Me: Why not?! I give up!
Gwennie: The moral of the story is that even though doggies are different shapes and sizes it doesn’t mean that they don’t need to be edumacated.
Gwennie: That’s what I said. Edumacated!
Me: You mean educated?
Gwennie: No, I meant edumacated.
Me: (Sigh) What do you think human children will learn from this book?
Gwennie: That cats are superior beings.
