Comments:

My first thought after finishing this book was:  “Lapsit!  Toddler Time!”  It could also work for Preschool Storytime.  It would be best for storytimes about dogs, bedtime and night time.

It’s a quiet book that could work well as a child’s last bedtime story, just before sleep.  Much like Goodnight Moon, the dog’s routine models things that a child can do as they are getting ready to fall asleep.  He inventories the house, thinks about favorite parts of his day, remembers words that he knows, curls up in his bed and says, “Goodnight, good dog.”  Next thing he knows, it’s morning!

Even though the book is quiet, it could work well for Lapsits and Toddler Time due to the brevity of its text and the cozy, familiar items the dog notices as he prepares to go to sleep.
