A humorous story about a busy family and a dog who wants to go outside. Eventually, the family realizes a walk together is what they all need. Have fun finding the hidden dog bones, counting the barks, and looking for the color red on each page. The book includes repetitive text and sight words.

***** Review *****

We’ve all been there! So busy we just tell a message off to the nearest family member and go about our busy business.

The story gets funnier with each turn of the page. The illustrations are quiet comical and perfect for this picture book. The language is simple and repetitive for very young readers to read independently, or for an older sibling to read aloud as well.

The family realizes they all need a break from the crazy to all go for a much needed walk.
