Review:
Rosie is a small dog who understands her family, consisting of Mommy, Daddy, Duff, and Jessie very well. She also knows exactly when it's time for breakfast, her one meal of the day, and how to spill the can under the sink to get dessert when everyone else leaves the house. Rosie also immensely enjoys a "Jane Fonda" exercise video with her loved ones.

This charming easy chapter book consisting of three gentle stories, readers are introduced to a lively little dog full of personality. While the author has anthropomorphized Rosie a bit, anyone who has ever owned a dog will know it is only a little bit.
