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.

Format: Hardcover
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!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Rebecca N TOP 500 REVIEWER on June 4, 2012
Format: Hardcover
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.

I remember this book fondly from when I was a young boy. Many a family member was stuck reading this book to me over and over on a rainy day. Once I was old enough to actually read it, I of course didnt have to... I had the words memorized. I upset my wife to this day, 30 years later, by reciting the words... now at long last I can share the pictures (not just the words) with my children. Thank you AMAZON, and thank you Amazon SELLER!

Format: Hardcover
A delight for any young child, this wonderful book is filled with bright and cheerful illustrations , as well as fun rhyming.
It is full of life and action in only 29 pages.
It teaches small children, the meaning of words, as they are taught to the dog.
Finally it teaches the meaning of procrastination, as the owner of the dog, with all his big dreams for his pet, on the last page says:
�I think I�ll start next year�

Format: Hardcover
This is a hilarious book to read. Have you ever seen someone try to teach their dog to "kiss the goose" and "mop the moose"! It has such a great flow of words and kids will love it and parents will too! You will find your self reading this over and over. The illistrations are so cute and show the actions of the dog as you read. How would you teach a dog one-hundred words? Well read this book and find out!

I got this book in a bundle of books I found at the thrift store. Boy am I glad that I did!!!! My son, now 4, made me read this book nightly for a year! He can still quote the entire book! My daughter, age 3, has just started wanting this book and she loves it, too. As a parent, I'm delighted to read it so often! It has a great rythmic flow and is just plain cute. Most mothers I speak to have never heard of it and I urge them to get this delightful book. If your looking for another fun book, try Mo Willems' "The Pigeon Wants a Puppy!"
