TWO DOGS ON A TRIKE is an adorable counting book for toddlers and preschoolers. Each page features dogs in different kinds of vehicles with a cat following not far behind as we count up to ten. At ten, you realize that the cat is in the spaceship, and that the cat is chasing away the dogs as we could down from ten to one. The book then ends with a cute next of two cats on a trike with a mouse in the background.

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.
