Big Dog ... Little Dog was probably the first book I read on my own. 20 years ago my uncle read all of P D Eastman's stories to me and now I get to read these same stories to his children. The illustrations are beautiful and the stories just as wonderful. No child should grow up without hearing these stories just once.

The only problem is that the stories can be so funny they don't really work as bed time stories, I mean, the dogs do some of the silliest things that will keep your kids laughing for hours after.

I made my father read this book to me every night when I wasyoung, and I knew it so well I could tell if he tried to skip pages!This book will always be my all-time favorite book for children. I adored knowing what Ted and Fred should do before they did!

My 2 1/2 yr old loves this book! It is a great bedtime read. It teaches opposites and colors, and it's one I don't mind reading over and over again. It also conveys that these two dogs are great friends, even though they have totally opposite preferences.

This was one of my favorite books when i was little. I loved it so much i wanted to read it every night. It is a great beginers book. Along with all of P. D. Eastmans novels for children. It is a must have book for everyone old and young.

I'm thirty years old and I've been searching for this book for 12 years. For the longest time, I thought it was called "Fred and Ted Are Friends". Thank goodness for Amazon's search-inside-the-book feature!!

The book is about two dogs (Fred and Ted) who live together and learn the meaning of communication and cooperation. I love this book because it reminds me of being at my grandma's house. If you've got kids, I'd recommend picking this up for them too to enjoy and treasure.

Just don't get rid of it when they get too old, because they'rgoing to want it again around the time they turn 25.

My little girl loves this story, it's a simple, easy to understand yet entertaining story. I also found it useful for teaching her words, on each page I would ask her to find things for me or I would point at something and aske her to tell me what it was. She thoroughly enjoyed this game and learned a lot of new words through playing it.

I bought this book for my son, it was his favorite and I he insisted that I read it to him everynight. When I became a day-care teacher, I took the book with me to read to my class of three-year-olds. It soon became a favorite of theirs as well. It eventually got old and torn, my son never forgave me for taking it to class. My son is now 20 years old with a son of his own. I am buying this book again for my new grandson. My son will be thrilled and I'm sure that my grandson will consider this book to be his favorite as well. This book shows how different we all are, yet we can all be friends and live happily together, because of, and inspite of, our differences.

My son rarely likes to sit still for a story, so there are few "hits" with him. This book is one of them. He'll listen to it every once in a while, but he really enjoys "reading" it himself. The friendship is obvious, and the funny predicaments the friends find themselves in delight this 3-year-old.
I think kids who DO like to be read to would enjoy it more. There is a small story about friendship and problem resolution, and differences - opposites - are treated with humor. All in all, a very nice little book for the 2 - 4 crowd.

My son received this book on his third birthday - in 1977. My three year old grandson recently discovered the tattered and torn copy that I had saved. He immediately fell in love with it and proudly annouces that it is "Daddy's favorite book." I'm not sure which "boy" will be more excited when the new copy arrives but in the meantime it has brought back a flood of memories for this Grandma. What a joy!

I loved this book as a child and recently found my copy at my grandmother's house. My daugther, who is 7, loves it too. Fred and Ted are best friends, and one is big and one is little.
The story keeps the child's interest and the drawings are simple, and pleasant.
I highly recommend this book for children aged 4-10. And adults will enjoy it too.
