There's A Book

Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion and Illustrated by Margaret Bloy Graham

Harry is a white dog with black spots who loves everything . . . except baths. So one day before bath time, Harry runs away. He plays outside all day long, digging and sliding in everything from garden soil to pavement tar. By the time he returns home, Harry is so dirty he looks like a black dog with white spots. His family doesn’t even recognize him!

A little bit of fun…who doesn’t love Betty White? I found this delightful little video of Betty White reading this classic picture book, Harry the Dirty Dog:
