The song "This Old Man" is the tune for this book. It requires counting and reading about dogs trying to get their treats. ( )

great rhyming story book for children

This book is very fun for children and very repetive so it would be of great use for young small children. It is a well written book that incorporates singing the give a dog a bone and it a great way of teaching children rhyming songs. I would definitiely use this for maybe a kindergarden or first grade class.

I really liked reading the book, "Give the Dog a Bone". It's a very outgoing, upbeat book to read to your children as a future educator. It seems like a book that would be easy to keep children engaged with. It teaches children how to count visually by looking at the bones that are placed at the top of each page. Some children learn better visually and it would be easy to fingerpoint each bone and count as well as see the number too. "Give The Dog a Bone" also shows rhyme and repetition which are good things to be present with kindergarten and first grade levels.

I really like reading the book, "Give the Dog a Bone". The book goes right along with the childs nursery rhyme. I would read this book to kindergarten or first grade students. The book is very fun and it is repetitive, so the children will love it. The book does not have a moral lesson, but it is just something for the children to enjoy. Also the book has numbers in it so it gives children the opportunity to practice their counting. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811846091, Paperback)

But then what happens? Why, it's one wild, slapstick adventure involving cobblers, cats, chickens, and much, much more. From poodles to Great Danes, an increasing number of clever canine companions join in the fun--and add up to a most entertaining counting book. Kellogg's witty reinvention of the classic counting song "This Old Man" makes numbers fun for the whole family.
