*Now Hiring: White House Dog* by Gina Bazer and Renanah Lehner, illustrated by Andrew Day
Now Hiring: White House Dog
by Gina Bazer and Renanah Lehner, illustrated by Andrew Day
Ages 4-8 40 pages Walker Books April 2009 Hardcover    

This is a cute tale of (presumably) the Obama girls looking to identify the perfect dog (their dad did promise, after all).

In a combination of prose and verse (uh, sometimes it rhymes sometimes it donít), the girls go through a parade of pooches looking for the right one to live in the White House. Though in real life the First Family has already picked a dog, this story will remain a great allegory about how each individual has unique qualities that he or she brings to the table.

Or in this case, the dog dish.
