Not since Harry the Dirty Dog has there been such a lovable puppy with such an aversion to grooming. A beautiful picture book about a lovable, but scruffy pet.
Our dog is not a clean dog,
a shiny or a fluffy dog.
Our dog is a seadog

From the Speech Pathology Australia website:
With great age-appropriate language and fantastic descriptive vocabulary, Seadog uses word play, phrase repetition and rhythm to engage the reader. It facilitates early word learning through descriptive language and draws the reader in with a sense of wonder and connection to the story. Seadog also promotes prediction and problem solving and facilitates discussion with its easily identifiable characters and situations. The beautiful illustrations also to it its appeal – a great book.
