Hairy Maclary from Donaldsons Dairy by Lynley Dodd

Hairy Maclary by Lynley Dodd

Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy is a fabulous book full of rhyme, repetition and rhythm – and funny animals! The book tells the story of scruffy dog Hairy Maclary meeting up with different dog friends who are all out for a walk. The dogs are all fantastically described, being all different shapes and sizes and are given fun, imaginative names. Each dog is happy to be outside, sniffing the air and snooping at every door, when suddenly they encounter Scarface Claw, the toughest Tom in town. This causes all of the dogs to run home in a scatter, a wail and a howl.

This book is excellent for introducing rhyming words, and repetition. All of the dogs have rhyming names, and a phrase describing them. As Hairy Maclary meets another dog, they are all added to a long list, which encourages children to repeat the names and remember the rhymes and alliteration. The fun names are silly and purposefully long, which is more enjoyable for children to hear and repeat.

I feel this book would be good for a range of ages. It can be read to younger children, as it has such bright and fun pictures, and then followed by a discussion about the characters and the names. Older children would enjoy reading this as well and it is a great way to inspire poetry and rhythm in their own writing. I think it could inspire very creative writing, with children making up their own animals out for a walk and then giving them imaginative names.
