Ten different dogs. Ten different interests. Join these animals as they introduce themselves with their names and personalities along with their numbers. Rhyming text and strategic pauses give kids a place to shout out the answers (and a surprise visit from some felines keeps it from feeling too rote). Just as in Ami Rubinger's I Dream of an Elephant, there's a hazy dreamlike quality about this book that makes it seem like it's taking part on another planet that has a very different natural environment. I think the bold, bright colours will appeal to young readers, and the expressions and characters of the dogs themselves create a fun learning environment for starting kids on their numeracy journey.
