Beginning with "The first six words I'll teach my pup are 'dig a hole' and 'fill it up.'" this book is absolutely hilarious. I had never heard of it before my son came along, but it is one of his favorites and mine. It is whimiscal, clever, and just plain fun: "have a care, don't paint the mayor." The cadence and flow of the words are masterful.
This nugget will surprise you. I hope you enjoy it.

I loved this book as a child and now I love it for my own daughter.

I have vivid memories of a time when I could just newly read and barely count ...
staying up well past my bedtime, writing down all the words that were new to the dog (i.e. not counting "a" more than once) and trying to count them to see if the book really had 100 words (it did!). It was that engaging. I remember it took me hours, and then when my mom caught me still awake, I lied and told her I had just woken up.

The point in that is that as a small child, I found this book so intriguing that I was reading, writing, and counting for fun, well past my bedtime. As an adult, I love the wit. As a parent, I love that I get to share the childlike love for it all over again.

This is such a fun book with real learning potential too. Love it.

ISBN 0394826922 - I'd already read and reviewed I'll Teach My Dog a Lot of Words (Bright & Early Board Books(TM)) when this, the unabridged version, fell into my lap. While I think the shorter, abridged version is a great introduction, this is what you want those little readers building up to!

A young, faceless, pet owner plans to teach his dog 100 words, impressing the entire town - including the mayor. Simple words like "walk" and "beg" are only the beginning of the plan. He also intends to teach him "stand on Uncle Abner's thumb" and "paint the road from here to there"... Plans, however, are one thing; getting started is quite another.

Author Michael Firth is fantastic, as usual, with simple language made extraordinarily fun. P. D. Eastman's illustrations are perfect - they're fun and funny and complement the text. Kids will laugh and learn and that, to be honest, is who we're really interested in teaching!

I have loved this book for a long time and have purchased copies for my grandchildren. I prefer this original version as opposed to the revised I teach my dog a lot of words. You need this size, and not the "block" version of the book, in order to read it with increasing speed as it is meant to be read.

We've read this book many times. My toddler likes it a lot, but I haven't heard her repeat any of the phrases or act out any of the scenes. Overall it's a fun story, and starts to cover the idea of opposites.

This was the favorite book of our boys when they were very little more than 20 years ago. I now buy it for baby shower gifts. It has a song-song rhythm that allows little ones to easily learn the words and pretend they are reading. A classic.

I enjoy reading these books with my 2YO. The words are short, the illustrations are entertaining and the story doesn't drag on to bore him. He is able to turn the pages and tell me the story by just looking at the pictures! He is especially fascinated by the animals- goose, moose, mouse, pig...and always giggles at "kick the stone"- for whatever reason. Lol.
I am completely happy with this purchase and would definitely recommend this as an addition to any toddler's bookshelf!

Fun fact: you will read this book so many times to your toddler that you will have it memorized by the end of the first week! While you recite the story (the first six words I'll teach my pup are dig a hole and fill it up!) you'll be able to use the brain space you'd normally use for reading to other parental tasks like wondering where you left the corkscrew and debating your ability to go one more week without dropping off the dry cleaning.

In short order, you'll be able to let your sweet little preschooler "read" the story to you. It's easy, it's fun, it's cute, and it stands up to time. I remember my dad reading this to me when I was a child. That reminds me, I owe him a thank you note!
