Cooper is a dog who does not know how to act like one. He dines with the family, watches ballet with the children, and sleeps on the couch. When the human family found him in a shelter, they treated him like their sixth child. Michelle Lander Feinberg’s Please Don’t Tell Cooper He’s A Dog is a hilarious fictional adventure for young pet lovers!

The illustrations stood out in this book. I enjoyed seeing characters with animated movements and expressive faces. Anna Mosca did a great job, as she captured the family’s joyful bonding moments in vivid watercolor illustrations. Cooper’s silly human-like behaviors will put a smile on a child’s face. Cooper’s quick trip all over Europe will allow a young imagination to visit museums in Spain, eat croissants in Paris, and shop in Milan. Children will relish the rhyming texts, especially when they read the words aloud. Plus, the editing quality is excellent. The narrative uses simple grammar that beginners can easily follow.

The story is a demonstration of how a dog can be a pleasant addition to the family. It talks about the significance of pet adoption and how it will not only change the dog’s life once we save them but ours too. In the story, Cooper’s human family embraced him like one of their own. In return, Cooper filled their lives with adventure and excitement, and it exuded from all the 30 pages!

There is nothing I dislike about this simple, charming book. I heartily rate this book 4 out of 4 stars for delivering a funny tale with a lovely message. I also loved those big, colorful pictures that gave life to the story.

Cooper’s narrative will entertain readers between the ages of three and eight. Children above that age bracket might not appreciate the simplicity of the story. Young children would enjoy having it read aloud to them. This book can also assist teachers and parents in teaching young minds how to read English.

This book seems to be getting popular, and for good reason. I read it and was curious as to what others thought about it. I'm glad you liked it as well. The Paris and croissant scene was hilarious! Thanks for your review. :tiphat:
