Harry the Dirty Dog and two stories about dogs. The title story, by Gene Zion, has Harry running away on bath day and then wondering if his family will recognise him when he returns all muddy; "Officer Buckle & Gloria," a Caldecott Honour Book by Peggy Rathmann about a police dog who helps an otherwise ineffectual officer convey safety tips to children (the best of this bunch); and "Angus and the Ducks," a story by Marjorie Flack that's a live action film about an inquisitive dog who checks out a commotion inside the neighbour's house.
Curious George Rides a Bike and more tales of mischief. Also features "The Great White Man Eating Shark" by Margaret Mahy and Jonathan Allen, about a boy who looks like a shark and decides to scare away swimmers, except for one female shark who's taken a shine to him; and "Flossie and the Fox" by Patricia C. McKissack and Rachel Isadora, a clever folkloric tale about a little African American girl who outfoxes a fox.
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and lots more learning fun, a musical learn the alphabet story with animated letters climbing a coconut tree. "Trashy Town" might remind some toddlers of "Bob the Builder" with its garbage men and their musical work reverie. "Rosie's Walk" by Pat Hutchins involves a clumsy fox who can't seem to catch a hen, while "The Caterpillar and the Polliwog" is a Jack Kent story about (three guesses) change.
