by Hudson, NeeshaOmlor, Elizabeth Stevens

This day-in-the-life story of a spunky girl and her rambunctious dog gets funnier and sweeter as the little girl takes on the tasks of walking, feeding and washing her pet. It doesn't always end in a clean dog (or a clean girl) but it does end with a big loving hug, followed by bedtime.

Walking your dog is easy...but only if your dog wants to walk.

This bouncy day-in-the-life adventure shows what happens when you pair a spunky little girl with a dog who's as stubborn as he is furry.

Debut author-illustrator team Elizabeth Stevens Omlor and Neesha Hudson use spare text and gorgeous ink-and-watercolor illustrations to show kids that working as a team requires cooperation, patience, and heart.

Selling points!
A GENTLE LESSON IN RESPONSIBILITY: Having a pet may seem like a walk in the park (and sometimes it actually is), but Walk Your Dog uses the daily tasks that come with having a dog to demonstrate that pet ownership requires responsibility and consistency.

SEQUENTIAL LEARNING: From a joyful wakeup and morning meal through a goodnight and bedtime, this story allows kids to anticipate the next activity that will happen during a day when you're caring for someone else.

A BOUNCY READ-ALOUD: Walk Your Dog pairs spare text -- e.g.:Walk your dog; Groom your dog, with each activity being illustrated, so even kids who are just learning to read can join in the read-aloud fun.

COMPROMISE REALLY WORKS!: Everyone has their own way of getting things done, but doing it as a team means staying open to the ideas of others. This story shows that patience, kindness, and compromise can win the day, even when interests conflict.

ADORABLE ART: Neesha Hudson's soft watercolor tones soothe, while her beautiful textures and detail-work create strong characters that engage and amuse.

Elizabeth Stevens Omlor is a writer, artist, and bilingual teacher who lives in rural Northern California with her husband, two young kids, two ancient cats, and two dogs whose combined fur could clothe a small village. She is addicted to peanut butter and spray-painting unsuspecting furniture.
Neesha Hudson has been drawing for as long as she can remember. She lives on the coast of Maine with her husband, their two children, and a Chinese Crested named Napoleon. She walks her dog, draws her dog, and even reads to her dog (with the kids help of course). You can learn more at

As readers will recognize early on, the owner and her dog are really two of a kind.
