This is an easy, beginners read. This was one of the first books I read on my own. These dogs can do anything humans can and the children will feel confident about reading on their own. Children will love reading this. ( )

This book teaches young children the different color meanings for stop lights in a creative manner. Different dogs are used as characters which makes draws children in. "Go Dog Go!" is one of my all time favorite books growing up! ( )

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)
