Children and their parents/grandparents love reading Paw Smart books because everyone learns something new about dogs, other animals, and plants. Going for walks becomes even more fun after reading the books.
The Paw Smart 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 wrote "will put a smile on your face and help your child expand their vocabulary."

Meet Odie, winner of the 2017 Gittle List Best Indie Children Picture Book, helps children understand dogs. Odie describes his physical traits, behaviors, apparel, and adventures in a conversational tone.  Meet Odie is the first in the Paw Smart series. 

In Odie Explores, Odie teaches Phoebe, his friend and neighbor, the joys of exploring. 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?  Do you know how to tell the sex of a box turtle by looking at its eyes?

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.
