OpeningRover’s in the dog house, chewing on a bone. What a day to romp and play! Too bad he’s all alone.
Summary: (from my library catalog) When a storm comes, Rover expects to have his doghouse all to himself but finds that various other animals, including a skunk, come to join him.

MoveOver,Rover!1Why I like this book: This is a great rhyming read aloud with a stinky surprise ending! Perfect for toddlers.

MoveOver,Rover!2Resources/Activities: a good companion read to The Mitten; try putting this on as a pre-school play, narrated by a parent or teacher; discuss how animals seek shelter in a storm.
