W.B. Tyler’s "If I Were Human" Blog Book Tour Stop - Book Review with #Giveaway #IfIWereHuman

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you could be an animal? How about taking your dog's place? Dogs seem to have it made...they lay around, bark when they are hungry, and get countless hugs and snuggles throughout the day from you. No worries about bills or to-do lists to tackle. Seems like an easy life, right? Well, what happens if the tables were turned and your dog wanted to take your place and be a human? Well, this cute book, from children's author, W.B. Tyler, will answer the question of what it would be like if a dog was a human, in a silly and entertaining way, that both kids and adults will enjoy reading together. This picture book is not just a fun read, especially at bedtime, but also shares an important message that kids may pick up on, and that you can talk about with them after you are done reading the cute story to them. The message is simple -- be happy with you, just the way you are. Both of my girls picked up on this message as we read through the story the first time through. My oldest, who is a huge dog lover, couldn't help but fall in love with Brina, the main character dog in the book. She kept asking me to hold off on turning the page, as she wanted to linger and take in all the detailing of the illustrations and simply admire the cute dog and other fun characters in the book, which include a squirrel who is chef. Yes, you read that right...a chef. Now imagine a dog on a school bus, or sitting at the table to do homework.

These are the types of illustrations you will find as you read through this picture book.
My girls and I really enjoyed this book, and it had us all smiling and giggling at times at the silly pictures. While it had the girls wondering what it would be like if they were a dog, or if our dog was a human, they both agreed that they are happy just the way that they are, and that they think our dog is happy to, being the center of attention and getting all the love from the girls, my husband and I. If you are looking for a cute picture book to share with your child as part of their summer reading, to share at bedtime, or just add a new book to the mix, then I highly recommend "If I Were Human" by W.B. Tyler, available now from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and IndieBound.


Written by W.B. Tyler
Publisher’s Synopsis:
"Brina, a Scottish Terrier, has lots of fun thinking about what she would do if she were a person! But when she shares those ideas with her friends, she begins to realize just how special it is to be a dog. The simplicity of If I Were Human makes it ideal for early readers, but with its imaginative story and entertaining illustrations, adults and children alike will love it. And who knows―you just may discover that you’d rather be a dog!"
