Encourage your child to join in with the repetitive phrases in the story. 

Look at the word used to describe the other dogs who go on the walk with him e.g. Hercules Morse.

Talk about the words used to describe him, e.g. big as a horse.

Ask your child to choose two or three of their favourite dogs from the book and complete the following sentences explaining why.

Encourage them to use the words from the text. I like….and….  They are …and….

Check for capital letters for names and at the start of the sentence. Check for full stops at the end.
