    Ted, an amiable dog, likes to keep up with what's happening. Though uninterested when his human family reads the newspaper or watches TV, he gathers news in his own way, taking a walk called "the Daily Sniff" and using his nose to find out what's happening around town. One day, when he goes outdoors for the Daily Sniff, a foul scent fills the air. Setting out to investigate, he discovers a skunk in the garage, looking for his younger siblings. Ted and his new friend search the town, round up the five little skunks, and take them home to their mother in the forest. The simply told story reads aloud smoothly, with a long pause needed on the broad double-page spread illustrating the town center, full of buildings, parks, a café, a fountain, and many small characters. Kids who enjoy seek-and-find books can help Ted and his new friend find the five little skunks, which are in plain sight, yet surprisingly challenging to spot. Colorful acrylic paintings brighten the pages of this appealing picture book. Preschool-Grade 2. Copyright 2023 Booklist Reviews.
