If you've ever been interested in presidential pets, you'll have to pick up First Pooch: The Obamas Pick a Pet. This fun book tells the story of the Obama family selecting their Portuguese water dog, Bo. It even tells you a little bit about other pets that lived in the White House! Look for it today in the non-fiction area of the Children's New Book Shelf. Happy reading!

Are you a dog person? Or someone who appreciates the art of photography? This book is a stunning gallery of beautiful dogs of all shapes and sizes. My favorite is Petunia the Boston Terrier - how about you?
