Dial Books for Young Readers
A counting book and a book about adopting pound dogs. This clever story using simple rhymes to count up to ten dogs, then counts from ten to one, as the dogs leave for new homes. Ever so clever, ever so perfect for young readers. It can be read to the youngest, and read by those learning to read. Author/illustrator Erica Sirotich matches dogs with new owners where spotted dogs go to firehouse workers and quick and thin dogs go to ballerinas.
