A cute story that has the kids reading along in no time.

Groovy Joe is a dog who loves ice cream, but his door keeps getting knocked down by bigger and bigger dinosaurs. He decides the best way to get along is to share his love of ice cream, leading to the catchy little tune that they sing each time a new dinosaur joins in.

What kid doesn't love dogs, dinosaurs, and ice cream. It's the trifecta of brilliance. Add into that a catchy tune and you're golden. The best part is the repeating phrase "It's awesome to share." That is the point of the book and it's hammered home each time the dog shares his ice cream. After the first time or two, the child will say it right along with you.

Overall, the images could be sharper, but they are cute, colorful, and eye catching. It's a book that is sure to gain popularity with the world's youngest readers for it's fun theme, cool characters, and relate-able lesson.
