Bark, George by Jules Feiffer
This is an excellent choice for little ones who are the correcting stage, because you see, when you tell George to bark, he doesn’t. He’ll meow. Or moo. Or oink. But he doesn’t bark. George’s mom ends up taking him to the vet to get to the bottom of the issue, and everyone is surprised at what they find. Despite clearly being short enough and simple enough for munchkins, Bark, George is funny enough that one of my third grade classes voted it as their favorite read-aloud of the year.
