A child can choose to read from a selection of hundreds of children’s books, but there is only one series for children who love dogs on exciting adventures! Follow the adventures of Kurt, Gert, Jazmine, and Bagel, as they become friends, escape from Mr. Natcher, the mean old dog fetcher, in an effort to avoid doggie jail, and see Mrs. Tricky’s hypnotic eye during their trip to Phoenix.
My second and third books have been selected as the 2018 Pacific Book Award Finalist (Gold Seal) and winner of a Gold Seal in two categories: Best in Children’s Picture Book for five years old and younger, and Best in Children’s Picture Book for six years old and up respectively.
Enjoy! My books were written for you and your children.
"This book’s focus on phonics makes Kurt, Gert, Jazmine, and Bagel an ideal picture book for beginner readers. With a story that spotlights the values of friendship, Dolnick’s picture book is a perfect example of that. It not only teaches phonics but also provides a fun and engaging story for young readers."
"Great for my little ones who are just starting out, and it’s such a treat to use a book like this because it makes teaching them how to read easier for me."
"This book will be fantastic for teaching children and adults to read more efficiently. The reader can read and sound out the words as he/she reads. I think Kurt, Gert, Jazmine, and Bagel by Irene Dolnick would be better suited to young people who are learning to read instead of the younger grades. Overall, a fantastic story, and very clever thinking to add the phonics. When you read this book, you will clearly be able to see the love, thoughts, research, and hard work in this wonderful book."
Brr! The temperature seemed like it was fifty degrees. The c–o–o–l chilly wind made Jazmine feel cold, hungry, and lonely. When she passes a picture window, she sees her two friends, Kurt and Gert, in a warm, cozy house. This made her feel a bit jealous! But this little dog would soon meet a handsome black and brown beagle named Bagel, who knows what it feels like to be alone and in need of a friend.
Jazmine heard the soft faint sound of a whimper. Who could it be? Their eyes met and quickly they became friends.
“Kurt, I have met a friend named Bagel. Can you meet us at the train station?” replied Jazmine.
