    One thought on “Rosa Goes to Daycare”

    1. **Random thoughts**Doggy daycare, told mostly from the dogs POV. The falling in the ice water made me gasp! Overall cute.

    2. Doggie daycare as an effective analogy for kids day care - from anxiety, bugs in the fur, outings and coughs - it's all there. Lovely illustrations.Read via Open Library openlibrary/works/OL15124

    3. An older child (5-8, maybe?) level picture book in which Rosa the dog attends doggy daycare for the first time. We're meant to see the dogs as having some of the same characteristics as kids (No mean dogs allowed, chewing your blanket at nap is too babyish, everyone has to stay away from danger on walks). I think this would make a dog lover out of a kid, but nothing here really reassures a kid worried about daycare as advertised, and so much time is spent introducing each dog we lose the thread [...]

    4. I wasn't impressed with this book. In fact, I found it terribly tedious to read. A dog goes to a doggy daycare, and then later falls into icy water because she does not listen. I suppose the point of this book is to reassure the child who is starting daycare, and recognize their fears, but the text is lengthy and definitely not appropriate but for a 3-4 year old with a good attention span (by the time which they probably know everything about daycare anyway) and the details provided in the text [...]

    5. I'm not really sure what the point of Rosa goes to Daycare is. It feels like two stories jammed together. It starts as a really good story about what its like to go to daycare through the eyes of a dog. It ends with the dog falling into an icy lake. I am sure young readers will appreciate the dogs, and relate to the daycare experiences, but the conclusion of the story drives my adult mind crazy.

    6. This book would be great to read to a new class in either pre k or kindergarten or a child who is afariad of the first day of schoool. It uses personification to bring a dogs story about their first time at daycare to relate to that of a childs. Thsi could be used to comfort a nervous child and give them hope that they too will have a good time a daycare too;

    7. I am a proud bull terrier's owner: usually animals are used as metaphores for kids (like: little mouse doesn't want to go to school and yaddayadda), while here the dog behaviour is typical bull terrierierish and very realistic! It is a fantasy world where dogs go to daycare and that is like the cherry on top :D lovely

    8. I love dogs and this was a great book about Rosa's first experience at a doggy day care. Helps with dog identification and seeing how dogs see each other, easy book to read with nice illustrations of the dogs
