Fun fun fun!!! Once the text is memorized...enjoy the other stories in the pictures. I still want to know why the one dog is wide awake in bed while everyone else is sleeping. Did he have a nightmare? Did he have too much caffeine? It's fun to speculate with your kids.
Very funny and quirky. My two year old would shout out the phrases along with me. She enjoyed this one very much. Most kids I know are already fascinated with animals, puppy dogs included. For that reason alone this is a great book for kids. Not only that it helps with color recognition, and also opposites such as in and out, stop and go, over and under, etc. This book goes a long way towards teaching youngsters some beginning concepts that they will use throughout their lives.
Oh my goodness, how I have loved this book! Even now in that I am in my twenties I still say that dogs are going to a go dogs go party when I see a group of them wandering( I live in the country so I see it often). Anyway, this book was an important part of my childhood..I brought me hours of fun! Fun is important you know.
Long time favorite of mine when learning to read as a child. There is something about how each different adventures of these dogs can empower a young reader. There is much humor throughout the pages and introduces words with flare! Wonderful illustrations on each page and seems to be made for both young boys and girls. If a parent is looking to help with teaching their children in reading, this book can be given as soon as three years old! They may not be able to read it at first, but reading this book to them can be a perfect beginning! A stack of these genres can encourage young readers to share with eachother and help them have a love of books. My cousins and I would take turns reading Eastman's books to each other. Boy those were the days! I can still remember Go, Dog. Go! and another favorite was Are You My Mother? You can not go wrong having these books in a child's library!
A plotless book about various dogs and what they're doing. My daughter loves this book, though it gets a little long as we hear about red dogs, blue dogs, yellow dogs, etc. Still, it was one of my faves as a child, too, so Eastman must've known that children would enjoy the pictures and simple text. One of the last pages features "a dog party," with a fun illustration to go with it. Long, but worth it.
Reading goes to the dogs in this timeless Beginner Book edited by Dr. Seuss. From big dogs and little dogs to red, green, and blue dogs, dogs going up and dogs going fast . . . who knew dogs were so busy? And laughter will ensue at the repeated question Do you like my hat? Like P. D. Eastmans classic Are You My Mother? Go, Dog. Go! has been a go-to favorite for over fifty years, leaving audiences of all breeds wagging their tails with delight.
Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.
"The canine cartoons make an elementary text funny and coherent and still one of the best around."
