Two Dogs on a Trike

Toddler-K–The rivalry between dogs and cats is on display in this transportation and counting title. From one dog standing alone to ten dogs on a spaceship, each step of the way, a cat doggedly follows along on a different vehicle. When the dogs recognize the cat, there is panic and a quick countdown from ten, as the dogs flee on various vehicles until again, “one dog stands alone.” Uncluttered illustrations with plenty of white space depict a variety of dogs on different kinds of vehicles which readers will delight in identifying, along with the humorous expressions of the dogs and the nonplussed cat.
VERDICT A recommended purhcase. The rhyming phrases make this title an ideal read-aloud, and the simple counting up and down from 1 to 10 builds early math skills.
