Don’t you just love dogs? In our home, our dog is family. We try to include him in most things and take him along with us everywhere that we can. He loves to celebrate holidays with us! I even dress my dog up from time to time and he doesn’t mind at all. He’s really one of us and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The best part about having a dog is having a forever friend that will always be there for you no matter what.

We really like this book because we can easily relate to it! We celebrate holidays with our dog all the time including his birthday of course. Throughout the book, Max & Bo celebrate a lot of holidays and the kids really liked that. It’s a really fun book with super cute illustrations. The dogs are bright-eyed and cute and the illustrations are filled with colors to match each holiday. It was fun to see the dogs in different costumes and enjoying all of the holidays together. This is a great book to help children learn about holidays and even some facts about dogs. For example, the author explains that Max & Bo like the 4th of July but are scared of the fireworks which most kids probably don’t know.
Something we thought was a really great addition to the book was the mention of COVID-19. Unfortunately, we are in a pandemic right now and it can be a little difficult to talk to kids about something so scary. Max & Bo help with this by having masks on and sharing a to-do list on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The tips are simple, easy to understand, and remember. According to the CDC, we should treat pets just like we would treat human family members to protect them from getting infected.
Max & Bo: Two Dogs on the Go is an easy read. Our 10-year-old didn’t have any issues reading the book to her siblings. There is also rhyming on every page which is a nice touch and makes it even more fun to read. The rhyming and illustrations easily kept the kid’s attention. The book also has “just for fun” activities in the book that will keep a child engaged.
