The author describes this book
"My kids like that the book is hand drawn, and looks similar to kids' drawings. They love that the main character is a dog, since they are dog-obsessed, and think that it's awesome that Dooley Bear goes on adventures all over the world. The books introduce new locations and countries to the kids, and teaches them about some of the activities that those cities or countries are known for."Reviewer Academics' Choice CA, USA
