Dogs Breeds for Kids!

A favorite mammal of children is of course the dog! Dogs are often called man's best friend.

Children enjoy learning about the different breeds (types) of dogs. There are plenty of books available which will teach children some of  the different dog breeds. Here are 3 dog books that I have used.

For younger children

All of the books are great to use in numerous places! They can be used in the home, classroom, at summer camps, in the car, on neighborhood walks, at the park, at the beach, when visiting families and friends, on vacations, etc. Who can resist looking at all the pictures and even learning the names of the different breeds.

Here are a few pictures to get the kids started. (Do you know their breeds? Answers below.)
