Two Dogs on a Trike
One by one, each dog escapes its yard and joins the adventure in this hilarious counting story. Vehicle-obsessed readers will love seeing all the modes of transportation that the pups use—until the family cat decides to round them all up to go back home.
Gabi Snyder’s charming text and Robin Rosenthal’s delightful illustrations are a surefire combination in this winning picture book.
What I loved: The illustrations are adorable and there are so many cool vehicles and dogs all throughout. The cat in the background is also a nice touch, and this is a super-fun way to count from one to ten and back down again. This is great for toddlers and preschoolers who may have aged out of the simpler counting books and is perfect for dog or vehicle fans. The font is also nicely large and clear, making it really easy to read aloud.
What left me wanting more: As a small point, the book description gives a story line that is not so clear from the book (that the family cat is rounding up the dogs to bring them home). The book is still fun no matter what story is ascribed.
Final verdict: Counting fun with dogs and vehicles, TWO DOGS ON A TRIKE is full of delightful illustrations and a simple but cute story line. Great for toddlers and preschoolers.
