A Sparks Collaborative Ensemble project written by Sheila Cowley, performed by Jim Sorenson and directed by James Rayfield.

With many thanks to St. Pete’s much-loved indie bookstore, Tombolo Books – and to all of the kindhearted lovers of dogs and books who shared photos as the illustrations.

If you’d like to share a photo of your dog (or dogs!) posing with your favorite book for our Read To Your Dog online gallery, a horizontal photo on your phone is great and you can email

You can also find this book in Spanish, Léele a Tu Perro, and many more free illustrated audiobooks for children on our YouTube channel @SparksCollaborativeEnsemble.
