Comments for Bulldog's Big Day

Bulldog's Big Day: 12/13/14

Bulldog's Big Day by Kate McMullan and illustrated by Pascale Lemaitre is about a plucky bull dog who desperately needs a job. He's given a chance to try out a number of local jobs and has hilarious problems with each one.

I read this book with my children. They know I had been looking for a good full time position for two and a half years. Like Bulldog, I've had to find other things I'm good at and retool myself. For Bulldog, the secret is in his love of baking. For me, it's my love of books and information.

I think Bulldog's Big Day is a perfect book for parents who are looking for work to read with the children. It illustrates with humor the things adults looking for work in tough economic times might have to go through. It also offers hope.

Four stars
