Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic #plumreview Every child should get the opportunity to meet Harry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry the dog I bought this for my grandson's birthday in November. It's a wonderful book about a dog that doesn't want to take a bath. There's another Harry the dog book about a sweater that Harry gets as a gift. I remember these books from when my own sons were preschoolers. Great illustrations, a story with a message in it. Great fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best children's book ever! Guaranteed crowd pleaser every time!. Every student (especially Kindergarten & Grade Ones), even the most reluctant readers love this book. Harry is absolutely lovable and the old style timeless illustrations are wonderful. Children keep on begging me to read this story over and over again. Once they have read "Harry the Dirty Dog", kids will become quickly get hooked to all the other Harry stories.
