The monosyllabic and easy to read, rhyming text makes this a perfect book for any beginning reader. Its humorous story makes it engaging and hard to put down. It is an all time favorite classic.

This book is about dogs who can drive cars. They work, play and even have a party. This book is suppose to be an easy read, a read along book for beginners. Readers will notice more things, even small things that seems not so big. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0394800206, Hardcover)

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)
