Nice clever way to introduce numbers without it seeming like a lesson, just all part of the fun of reading a story.
Have enjoyed all of this series, as has our 3.5 year old.

Dog has shared his experiences in reading and drawing, now it's time to count! This adorable little mutt is having a hard time falling to sleep, and sheep just aren't working, but being a wise dog, he knows a solution awaits him in a book. His imagination takes off as he explores a world full of curious creatures that represent the numbers one through ten. The first is the lonely dodo, then follows a bunch of animals and insects, with legs and stripes being used for the other digits. Yates reinforces the count in several ways, repetition in the text, a name tag, and even numbering each leg or stripe. Her pencils and soft watercolours are as usual a delight to look at. While this whimsical journey is not the best example of this author's storytelling abilities, as a concept book, it is quite effective.

Dog is just so cute! The kids enjoyed this as a bed time story. It is a really lovely book but not quite as good as Dog Loves Books. I love Dog Loves Books.

Dog can't get to sleep. He loves books so much that he just can't stop reading. Dog tried counting sheep, but it's not working - perhaps there are some other creatures he can count. Soon Dog is off on an adventure, finding friends and numbers in unexpected places.
