If Dogs Could Do Chores
If Dogs Could Do Chores is a children's picture e-book written by an EIGHT year old. And it is worth the read! 

This book's concept is funny: An 8 year old girl imagines dogs doing her chores, and the result looks hilarious. There's a poodle who's cooking dinner and a dog in a pink frilly apron sweeping the front step. My favorite is the elegant long-haired dog cleaning up her "mess." The last page shows the girl relaxing in a hammock with a dog bringing her lemonade (and winking at the reader), since she gets to relax if her chores are done by dogs. 

I do not give 5 stars lightly, but this book is a delightful read-aloud with detailed illustrations that made me and my children (age 4, 7, and 10) smile.
