School Library Journal - 11/01/2013 PreS-Gr 1—This illustrated version of a lesser-known Bob Dylan song focuses on the joys of a carefree childhood. A girl and her younger brother wander through their day, have adventures on the playground, make mischief at a swamp, and gaze at the night sky. Along the way, more and more dogs join their play. The sweet, simple concept falls short, though, with peculiar lyrics that may not resonate with young readers. The humorous watercolor illustrations, while full of detail, are marred slightly by the characters' stylized expressions.—Laura Stanfield, Campbell County Public Library, Ft.
