Children and their parents/grandparents love reading the Paw Smart series. Paw Smart Books teach kids appreciation for animals.
This series currently features two lighthearted, interactive books that are written from a dog’s perspective. The books are informative, but not preachy. They contain plenty of photographs and a glossary that as one reviewer phrased it "will put a smile on your face and help your child expand their vocabulary."

Meet Odie, winner of the 2017 Gittle List, celebrates and explains the why of a happy dog to young children. Odie describes his physical traits, behaviors, apparel, and adventures in a conversational tone.  Meet Odie is the first in the Paw Smart series. 

Odie Explores is newly released. In this book, Odie teaches Phoebe, his new friend and neighbor, how to explore their neighborhood. Odie gives quirky facts about common and overlooked animals and plants. For instance, did you know bees have five eyes or that chickens recognize people?

Follow Odie's Facebook page to get interesting nature facts and become paw smart like him!  

At his FB page, Odie shares facts about "unicorn" whales (narwhals), pretty African painted dogs, rodents twice as big as him, and much more including how to track sharks, how frogs see better than us in the dark, and why many dogs like having their bumpies (back ends) rubbed.
