Once again we accompany the storyteller on a journey to find a pet. We look in numerous places, but we can't find the dog we seek. We refuse to give up!
Again, using this to learn Chinese is not working for me. Without explaining the meaning of each symbol or the punctuation this does nothing for me. I decided to focus on the story in my own language and forget the rest.
This picture book has good, activity-filled illustrations and simple text. In the search for our little dog, there were some dogs that looked like but apparently were not him, according to the continuing search. It would have been helpful if the missing dog was more unique-looking.
I read a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

This author has a series of bilingual children's books that ask the question, “Where Is My Little ______.” This particular version features an absolutely sweet dog, and the text is written in both English and Chinese. Unlike some other books in the series, this one feels interactive, with the author asking the child several times on different 2-page spreads if she or he sees the dog. I liked that the dog was so friendly, even with other animals dogs are not particularly known to be friendly with, like cats! As each “where is the little dog” scenario is shown and questioned, the lower right-hand corner depicts what the dog might have been doing if he had been there. The book ends with coloring pages, a few select darling images from earlier in the book. The book does have a mistake at the end. There is quite a difference in meaning between “dog lady” and “lady dog”! This would be a fun book for any child who is learning Chinese or is a part of a bilingual family.
I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
It’s not written well in English or Chinese. Grammar and syntax is off in both languages. The Chinese is a result when you put a poorly written English sentence into google translate. I don’t leave reviews but I couldn’t stand silently while people waste their money. The people who left positive reviews must have received a different book.

I received a free copy of this book and I am voluntarily leaving this review. This is a super cute book with fun pictures that invite children to look for details. There are fun coloring pages at the end as well!
