Self Publishing Book Spotlight: Bailey’s Day

Robert Haggerty’s first juvenile fiction, Bailey’s Day, entertainingly answers the question: what does your dog do all day when you go to work, and prompts dog owning children to imagine the possibilities of what really goes on with their pets when they’re not looking.

In Bailey’s Day, published by Outskirts Press, first time author Robert Haggerty speculates for his beginning readers about what actually happens when Bailey’s owner sets off to work. Hardly one to sleep all day, Bailey, a black and white pointer, sets off herself for a day of child pleasing adventures.Haggerty’s age appropriate text is accompanied by delightful, full color illustrations as well as photographs of the real life Bailey as it tells the tale of Bailey hooking up with her best friend, the wiener dog Frankie. All goes well with their visit to the swimming pool, their romp through the park, and their feast of tacos with Pete, The Taco Man, until Bailey suddenly runs into her owner, the mailman, out on his rounds.

Written for parents or teachers of children just beginning to read, author Haggerty takes careful measure with vocabulary building and with the pace and length of his sentences while still encouraging young readers’ imaginations to take off in flight about what their dogs do when they’re off at school for the day.

Bailey’s Day will be a hit, as well, with any parents or teachers who themselves have ever loved a dog.
