Harry the Dirty Dog

I enjoyed this book so much as a child & am delighted to see that it’s still available & a favorite.. Absolutely appalling & astonished that anyone would interpret this as being racist!!! I enjoyed this book as a child & read it to my children & will read to my grandchildren & not one of us was or will be influenced into becoming racist..Please give people the benefit of the doubt of having their own thoughts & morals & intelligence not let a little childhood book or cartoon supposedly influence their thinking! If this is the case then everyone should read & be reading the Bible & about our true history of America a melting pot & how we were founded be some of it good & bad but it’s made us a beautiful nation of people that are more tolerant then you give them credit for! That left racist communism socialist dictatorship countries in some cases risking their lives to come here to a free America 🇺🇸

Great book, fun read.

We really enjoy this book, I don’t get tired of reading it as an adult.

a crowd pleaser or on it's own, it's great!

I purchased this book with the intention of reading it to a group of 150 impoverished Ecuadorian children in Quito, Ecuador. The children range in age from 5-11. THEY LOVED IT!! They were particularly responsive to the funny,mischeivous antics of Harry as they oohed and aahed after I had finished reading each page! It was a good lesson about how to be yourself too. The children immediately shouted "otra vez!" after the first reading. I obliged with 2 more readings!

A childhood favorite

I adored this book as a child and I still have my original copy of "Harry the Dirty Dog" packed away in my parents' attic. Not only did I empathize with Harry because as I child I hated baths as much as Harry does, but I also knew that even when I was at my filthiest, way down deep inside, I was still loved.I have a very dirty dog at home who is in desperate need of a "fur cut". He reminds me of Harry because he's completely unrecognizable. However, no matter how furry he gets, we'll still love him, just like Harry's owners love him!

I have always loved Harry the Dirty Dog!

I am an elementary school librarian in WV and each year I always anticipate the reading of Harry the Dirty Dog and the other Harry books to my students. They are always captivated with the stories of Harry and sit enthralled as I read to them. Often students request a reread of the Harry books throughout the school year. The Harry books become some of the most frequently checked out books after the children have heard the stories. We are hooked on Harry the Dirty Dog!! :)

Happy National Dog Day! This year, the holiday may be getting a little extra "woof!" For many, the pandemic served as the perfect time to welcome a new furry family member. And, whether new or old, loyal tail-waggers have long been a source of literary inspiration.
