Moka Becomes a Water Dog *Book Review
The Dog on my Feet series starts out with Moka Becomes a Water Dog by Jeff Stevenson, illustrated by Nicholas Voshall.

Dad has a brilliant idea to tempt Moka into the water to play, helping her to forget her fears. Moka loves her new toy and learns to be a water dog!
This books makes an excellent easy reader. The words are basic and easy for a beginner to read. The simple, large text will help kids feel confident in their skills while learning about Moka and her adventure to becoming a water dog.
Illustrator Nicholas Voshall adds comedy to the book with his childlike drawings, giving the story an overall feel that it was created by a youngster, for his friends. The back of the book includes activities for the young reader to enjoy. A few coloring pages, a maze and a word find.
A note from the Author:
The Dog On My Feet Series is a series of illustrated children’s books written around the family dog Moka as she grows and discovers her world. It is illustrated by a talented young man named Nicholas Voshall of Lancaster, CA. This series was imagined by our oldest son, Lucas.
