Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

What a day these dogs have! There's running, knocking over garbage cans, digging, and even snacking from a friendly hot dog vendor. But dogs being dogs, they're easily distracted, and as the day wears on, the spirited pack is reduced one by one: "Eight silly dogs are/ racing through a lot./ If one lies down 'cause he's too hot,/ then there are seven racing through a lot." By the end of the day, one dirty, tired dog is all that remains, and as the book closes he's receiving a much-needed bath from his young mistress. Working in crisp-looking spreads with plenty of white space, Flather (Just Dog) creates 10 very different canine characters. They range in size and appearance from Labrador-ish to Pekinese-like, but they all share that goofy, wide-eyed, one-track-mind countenance that dog owners of all ages will instantly recognize and chuckle over. Bold, blocky numbers within bright red boxes feature prominently in each vignette to insure that the audience keeps an accurate doggy census. Flather's rhyming text feels a bit blunt, meter-wise, but that's a minor quibble for a book that is a rollicking tribute to a dog's life. Ages 2-5. (Sept.)

From Library Journal

PreSchool-K-"Silly" may not be the most appropriate word to use with this litter of pups doing what dogs do naturally when exploring their environment. Beginning with 10 assorted pooches, Flather counts backward down to one lonely dog ready for a bath. Colorful illustrations depict a wide variety of breeds and sizes running across a field of green, over a rocky wall, and across a busy intersection. The colored-pencil and watercolor artwork is vivid enough to be easily seen by groups if used as a read-aloud. The rhyming text is large, with the written number emphasized in bold print. For collections needing more number books, this one will fill the bill.

Format: Paperback
This is my 2 year old daughters new favorite book. The adventures that the dogs go on is a fun and interesting way for preschoolers to learn about counting, especially the extra challenging- counting backwards! The story line and illustrations provide endless discussions on what the dogs are up to. I highly recommend for any parents of toddlers.
