A cute book about words - rhyming in most places, but not all. My toddler loved the silly pictures of the dog doing very non-dog things. Simple language, rhyming, colorful, simple pictures, exactly what you'd expect from a Cat in the Hat book! ( )

It is, of course, valuable to have more pictures of dogs by PD Eastman, he of Go, Dog, Go! fame, but come on, Michael Frith (the author of the words in this book), you're teaching your dog a combination of goony dog commands like shake a paw and basic kid words like up and down? Its boring and pedestrian, when you could have taken a leaf from PD Eastman's (other, better) book and taught him words like "dogs in cars again" and "A DOG PARTY!!!!" Fine, phrases. ( )

10 months - a good very early reader for learning opposites, colors and various words. Great for teaching signs. ( )

I didn't care much for the words in this book at all. It didn't suck me along at all & just seemed kind of dumb. (This from a guy that rated [b:Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb|857501|Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb|Al Perkins|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1320420689s/857501.jpg|19838] & [b:Hippos Go Berserk!|815985|Hippos Go Berserk!|Sandra Boynton|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1348176620s/815985.jpg|801906] with 5 stars.) The illustrations were good, though. ( )
