Just like the last one my son loved shouting out the end of the rhyme. In fact he got a little too excited and at one point bounced right off the bed and onto the his bottom. He wasn't hurt and just laughed all the more. Again I was in love with all of the illustrations. The simple rhymes make it easy for young children to participate. It was also nice to see a few cat thrown in at the end. My son was especially happy to see them. The review reflects not only my opinion but his as well Oct 01, Liane Marie rated it really liked it.

Once again, Ami Rubinger has written an adorable book that helps children learn to count in a fun way. Each dog presented has a little rhyme of its own with that missing word at the end again as Ami's other books.

Then together with the dogs, they make a group of twenty. Readers who enjoyed calling out the missing words and the vibrant computer-generated ar This is a simple counting book with rhyming text. Readers who enjoyed calling out the missing words and the vibrant computer-generated art in Big Cat, Small Cat will find this book just as amusing. It would work well as a read-aloud for math lessons dealing with counting by ones or twos, or even a quick introduction to addition with the final sum of dogs and cats. I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley. Nov 12, Melissa rated it liked it Shelves: picture-books , juvenile , netgalley , dogs.

Once we meet all 10 dogs, 10 cats count off in pairs by twos, and then we get to count the entire group to get to It really was a well put together premise, but I just didn't care for the illustration style, and had a hard time getting past that.
LIKES --solid rhyme makes this book an easy read-aloud --the text is structured so that it begs for the child to complete the couplet --I particularly LIKE that at the end ten cats are introduced so that children can practice reading to not only 10 but 20! This would be a good selection for a classroom where children could pick it up on their own after it's been read aloud to them a few times.

This is a book that teachees counting. I begins counting dogs by ones and ends counting cats by twos. Towards the end of the story, the numbers are not written out, so the students have to complete the sentece. This is great for a math lesson, especially since it counts the cats by twos.
This is something that you dont see enough of in grades higher than kindergarten, so the kids get caught up when they are required to count by anything other than ones.

Aug 19, Jennifer Heise rated it it was ok Shelves: beekman , picturebook , animals , children , dogs , math. I can't like this book because the layout of the first page doesn't make it clear that the end of the line on the first page is the number on the dog. The dog is on the left side of the double-page spread, but the text ends on the right side of the page, with an ellipsis.
As the designated reader-aloud, I didn't twig to this until I got to page , and at first hunted for a missing page ! I like the concept, but if you don't tell a parent that they are supposed to stop and point to the dog t I can't like this book because the layout of the first page doesn't make it clear that the end of the line on the first page is the number on the dog.
I like the concept, but if you don't tell a parent that they are supposed to stop and point to the dog to get their child to repeat the number-- or count the dogs-- it's confusing for everyone.

The wonderful thing is that children can play along with this book as they try to fit in the word that rhymes. The colorful illustrations make the book come alive. Apr 29, Anne rated it liked it Shelves: storytime-contenders.
That one is also rhyming, but about opposities.
This one is a counting book, and more obvious to the kids I think. It could still work for storytime if you are looking for a counting book, but as far as numbers books go--this one doesn't stand out. Mar 13, Carol rated it liked it Shelves: picture-book , netgalley , concept-book , rhyming , pets , interactive. This is a fun concept book that engages the reader in predicting the numerical rhyme. So this is a fun and interactive book to read with young children.
My only complaint is the flat colors used. They are too pastel and unnatural for my personal taste. However, kids probably won't mind. Oct 09, zapkode rated it really liked it Shelves: childrens , ebooks , read4review. This is another nicely written book by Ami Rubinger. It is about counting from one to ten, however it is written in a rhyme. I think the illustrations fit the book very well and can be appealing to children in preschool - first grade. The only thing I was not fond of was the red text on a few of the pages because it made it difficult to read.
Mar 22, Julie Barrett rated it it was amazing. Each dog not only has their own name, but a number and each has something different about themselves. Good for not only colors but numbers and playing counting games. Also adding game at the end when the book combines different numbered dogs on a page.

Two big balloons tied to the bed, three toy trucks painted blue, green, and red. Daddy Hugs , by Karen Katz. I recommend this book for babies and young toddlers, as more advanced listeners will be bored by it.

We enjoyed this beautiful, captivating book about a group of Maasai children who count through the grasslands of Tanzania.
Counting Crocodiles , by Judy Sierra. The rhymes are somewhat awkward, and the story is odd. The book is about a clever monkey who wants to leave her island and cross the Sillabobble Sea to a banana tree. But the sea is infested with crocodiles! Great book, but I do wish it had numerals in it.
This is a bright counting book in which Granny travels around the world, collecting souvenirs as she goes — from one flying carpet in Istanbul to ten llamas from Peru.
