If You Give a Dog a Donut


I am “paw-sitive” you will love this boy’s birthday party: If You Give a Dog a Donut. This darling idea was styled and photographed by Toni Thomason, of , for her son’s 5th birthday. Choosing a theme that reflects hobbies and/or interests of the guest of honor is so important and helps the planner (in this case, mom Toni) design an event that can truly bring joy. Toni’s son is obsessed with puppies, so planning a puppy party was a natural choice. She opted to base the party around his favorite book, If You Give a Dog a Donut. All of the decorations, the cake and treats tie back to the book and theme in such darling ways.

The exuberant dog who first appeared in if you give a pig a party is now the star of his very own book. Written in the irresistible “If You Give…” tradition, if you give a dog a donut is another home run from the beloved team of Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond.


If You Give A Dog A Donut...Laura Numeroff

Fans of the series have their own favorites among the seven books, but IF YOU GIVE A DOG A DONUT stands up to the others by comparison. It's hard to resist the unabashed exuberance of the dog -- when he does a "happy dance" to celebrate hitting a home run or wraps a bandana over one eye to impersonate a pirate. Felicia Bond's illustrations are uncluttered and utterly winning. And author Laura Numeroff captures the fun-seeking spirit of kids in her canine character.
