Simple illustrations and simple rhyming prose make this a great book for introducing or reinforcing counting with preschool children. Kids will enjoy the antics of the puppies and the repeating structure will entice kids to ask for this story again and again.

Up and down the number line with puppies who are up and down from their nap. I think small children would enjoy the story and the cute puppies and their antics. I also noticed a trend in several 123 books of going forward and backward with the numbers and I think that it adds to the interest and length of the story and gets children really familiar with their numbers 1-10.

This is a cute book is has the reader count to 10 but having puppies play together and then it has the reader count from 10 to zero has the pups fall asleep. This is a good book to learn how to count because it is very engaging and the illustration is done well. It also uses a lot of verbs which helps the child learn what each verb is by looking at the illustration.

One pup's up, then two, then three and so on all the way to ten pups. Told in short rhyming phrases, the story counts up and then back down as the puppies end going to sleep. The story ends with all pups sleeping "until... one pup's up..."

Engaging puppies! Love their fat little bellies. Great for one-on-one lap time, so grown-ups can talk about all the great language (huddle, pounce, pudgy, tussle, peppy, dines, nudge, muzzle). Might work in a preschool storytime; I think the pictures are a little busy for toddlers.

Bonus points for rhyming "hiccup" and "lick-up." ( )
