Storytime: Hot Dog by Doug Salati

This dog is hot and needs an escape from the sizzling city summer! Join this pup and his owner on a trip to the beach, where they find their calm restored by the waves, sand, and fresh air. This Caldecott Medal picture book by Doug Salati is a playful read that breathes calm into a hectic world.
