The title alone catches my attention, doesn't it do that for you? Sounds like a dog that many people would feel right at home with! Children enjoy animals, especially pets, and watching TV, so the combination in this new book, by Linda Derkez and her husband Mike, is sure to delight kids and their parents.
There are three chapters in Manny the TV Watching Dog, and in each of them Manny's master is looking for someone to do specific tasks, and Manny is quick to say, "I can do that." Unfortunately, the TV turns out to be too big of a temptation to Manny, who is constantly distracted from the job at hand for some fine TV watching.
Many of us can certainly relate to this happening, to ourselves and our children. Linda has creatively written this story with a dog who acts quite human in many ways. The adorable illustrations add to the fun as children follow Manny's positive well-meaning offers and what happens each time.
