Boone Doggies, by Linda and Frank Sebenius.
Boone, the Dachshund, is part of a very special family of dogs. Yes, all six are the same kind of dog. They are wiener dogs! But can you see how they are all different?
Boone shows how we are all different on the outside yet like the same things … like digging! And Boone helps us see that being different is what makes us special.

What Others are Saying
Some books resonate better than others, and it is always the ones with content that teaches a lesson, a story that engages your emotions, and then with whimsical & unique illustrations that become classics. This book, “A Different Kind of Dog” contains all 3 of those elements.
The first time I read it, I was delighted. It is a visual delight, but the story also gives children a gentle lesson in seeing that it is okay to be different. We are never too young or old to learn we are all different, but that this is not a bad thing … but good. It is this kind positive reinforcement that gives children self-confidence, I believe.
The descriptions of each dog, along with the illustrations let us know each dog individually. A child reading this could pick one as their favorite or think one dog looks like one they own or have seen before. They could see them in their own minds playing in the grass & chasing butterflies … then snuggling down together for a nap.
Reading it just made me feel good, and I think it will do the same for the many children who will read it. I can’t wait to get my first copy. Chris Colman, Elementary School Librarian & Art Teacher, Hampton, Virginia
