Life lessons? Romance? Literary instruction? Go, Dog. Go! offers all this and more, wrapped up in one simply worded, warmly hued package. Using single-syllable words in rhythmic repetition, and introducing colors and prepositions, this Seuss-styled classic has been an early favorite of children since 1961. For those looking for deeper meaning in a beginning reader book, here you'll find nothing less than a microcosm of life. Green dogs, yellow dogs, big dogs, little dogs. Dogs who prefer cars, dogs who favor skis. All represent the diversity a child will find in the world. And the slow-to-bud romance between the cheerfully oblivious yellow dog and the mincing pink poodle explains more succinctly than most self-help books what goes on in many grown-up relationships. Nonetheless, Eastman takes the concept of "primary" to heart, with his simple silly phrases and solidly colored illustrations. Not only will this book inspire peals of laughter in kids, it will also help them make the magical connection between those mysterious black squiggles on the page, and the words they hear and speak. (Ages 4 to 8)
"The canine cartoons make an elementary text funny and coherent and still one of the best around."--School Library Journal.

As they were driving, my friend got more and more uncomfortable and diarrhea was at his doorstep. He was in a company owned car with a company driver, he was at a managerial position and had face to save but nature is a strong beast.
As they hit a few road bumps, he could no longer hold his intestines and other body parts shut and soiled himself completely through his underwear and pants. every bump bounced him up and down and drove the stuff higher and higher up his back. the driver said nothing.
As he got home, he wobbled out of the car, penguined back to his apartment where his wife opened the door and he could only stand there and say: I s**t my pants. to which, he got a familiar nod and gesture to clean himself in the toilet.
I am a huge Dr Seuss fan and have read all his extended library books including these Beginner ones to my kid. This specific book is as embarrassing, poorly planned and executed as the guy from my story and I regret every second I spent at work making money that ended up paying for this "book". What a MASSIVE waste of time and I cannot believe that even the 1-2 stars here all say they liked it to an extent and only had some other issues with it. It didn't even rhyme for Seuss' sake!
This would fit a first grade reading lesson as a teaching book rather than a Dr Seuss collection.
Absolute pretentious garble. top comment calls this a "Haiku". let me write a real one:
"Wasted. Time passing. Dogs.
Nothing moving. Depression.
Take me away to the beard in the sky.
Random words. Random. I am Angel. Money gone"
But the best part about the book is that it taught my son how to get the ladies. We want our son to be healthy and happy and all that blah blah stuff but really if he's a true ladies man we'll feel like we succeeded. But it's a hard concept to teach... Luckily GDG does it.
If you take out all the noise of the book, dogs on trees and in water and such, you get the recurring story, an almost Shakespearean story, of two dogs.
Spoiler alert: I'm going to talk a bit about the plot so read no further if you haven't a the book.
The girl dog likes the boy dog and craves his attention. Not only is she into the dog but she has a weird obsession with hats. I think there's a larger story there. Perhaps she hates her hair or maybe she has an oddly shaped head. I'm going to guess it's a hair thing because poodles have weird hair.
Anyway the girl poodle goes up to the guy and asks if he likes the hat. He says no. It's a decent hat, not a great one, but you can tell he said no because he was being a player. I mean a dude would probably just say yeah to shut her up so the answer no is a little suspect.
Then they say good-bye.
Later on the girl dog comes back and asks about the hat again. It's a new hat. This time it's an ugly hat so the boy dog said no again. In itself it seems like he's being honest because the hat is heinous but a pattern is showing.
Yada yada... Some dogs going in cars...
Then the pair are back. Skiing this time... The girl dog asks... No nags about the hat. This time it's a cool hat. A super long snow cap. And we all know women look hot in ski/snowboard gear so the boy dog is just playing the game. And it's working. She's falling for him.
Oh look, a dog on a tree...
Back to the story at hand. It's the day of the party. A big dog party. And there's the little girl poodle in her party hat.
She ask "Do you like my hat?" and the dude replies "I do. I like it."
He's in... She jumps in the car and and they go home... They skip the party. He's in. He's The Man... Or The Dog.
Moral of the story... Kind of ignore the ladies and pick them apart a little bit and they'll be wrapped around your finger.
I'm so glad we were able to make this one of our son's favorite books. He will be a ladies man when he grows up... And GDG will have played a big part in that.
