About the Book

Young readers will want to wiggle and bounce and dig through the day with the circle dogs . . . until it's time for bed!

The circle dogs live in a big, square house with a big, square yard. See the dogs? See the circles?

The sun comes up, the baby cries, and the circle dogs stretch and yawn. With a flip-flap of their tails the rambunctious pooches are off to spend a happy day with Mama, Papa, Big Sister, and Baby in the big square house.

A joyous picture book bursting with activity, shapes, and playful sounds from acclaimed illustrator Dan Yaccarino and Kevin Henkes, creator of Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse and many other beloved and bestselling picture books.

The wonderfully fresh and vivid look of the artwork paired with the rhythmic whimsical cadence of the text makes this book a perfect choice for very young audiences.

"Each page is a beautifully composed arrangement of sleek shapes that float on a field of creamy paper." (New York Times Book Review)
