Meet Dash, a fun-loving pup who loves to dress up, wear new costumes every day, and go out to play in the storybook Dash's Week by Nicole MacDonald. Dash loves to dream and he is imaginative. The story takes young readers on a journey with Dash and his adventures. They see Dash becoming a pirate who sets out in search of diamonds and gold, a lion running and roaring through the grassy green plains, an astronaut who is headed to space, a superhero who is ready to save the day, a cowboy who sits on the ranch in the wild, wild, west, a master magician, and a chef who loves cooking. Let us join Dash and make our weekdays as exciting and adventurous as his!

The story is adorable and will encourage children to imagine and be creative. The rhyming verses give fluidity and pace to the author's expressions and make Dash's imagination and adventures palpable. Claudia Varjotie adds to the delight of the story with her wonderful images that give personality to Dash and bring the scenes alive for readers. The story also has an underlying message of kindness that runs subtly through it. It is a good storybook for storytelling sessions at home and classrooms because it not only encourages children to be imaginative and creative but also teaches them kindness through Dash. Everyone can have fun like Dash, and everyone can become a hero like Dash, and every day of the week can be exciting and adventurous!

The story flows from one page to the other in a very engaging manner. It keeps the readers curious all the way through. Our little main character takes different roles as the week days are presented and a new good deed accomplished. I am very proud to have illustrated such an endearing story.
