Cute, not my favorite
on October 17, 2015
This is cute, though the pages seem a bit cluttered (which would be hard to avoid for a counting book.) The various doggies each have a different sound they make, from bark, to whine, to howl. At the end a cat breaks the pattern.
It isn't as inviting as some, to pick up and read to a non-verbal baby, which is what I am looking for at the moment in board books.
My favorites of the Boynton books are "Blue Hat, Green Hat," "Moo, Baa, La-La-La," and after that would be "Barnyard Dance." I also just previewed "Snuggle Puppy" on YouTube (a great way to preview books), and THAT is the Boynton doggie book I SHOULD have ordered.
For counting books (though not a board book, I think), I love Mem Fox's "Let's Count Goats." That is so much more than just counting, and with funny rhymes that roll off your tongue, it is a delight to read.
