Board Book Review: Dog Comes Too, by Hazel Hutchins and Gosia Mosz (Illustrations)


Dog Comes Too, by Hazel Hutchins and Gosia Mosz (Illustrations)
This adorable board book helps build language skills.

A frisky young dog tags along when its owner heads off for a walk. Brightly colored illustrations clearly show the obstacles that the dog meets along the way.

Very young children will love the antics of this adorable, irresistible dog as it explores its world. Little will they realize that they are also honing their language skills as the word pattern based on “too” takes them through various parts of speech. With its predictable, repetitive text, this board book lends itself perfectly to having small children chime in. For older preschoolers, the simple language makes it an ideal learn-to-read book.

A companion book, Cat Comes Too, is also available. These books follow on the heels of the bestselling Up Cat and Up Dog, winners of the 2012 National Parenting Publications Awards.

Reading level: Ages 2 and up
Board book: 26 pages
Publisher: Annick Press; Brdbk edition (February 26, 2013)

My Thoughts:
Another adorable and beautifully illustrated board book from Annick Press. I absolutely love both this book and its companion book, Cat Comes Too.

It is a simple board book with only a couple of words on each page, making it quick to read.  The bright colors and language expanding text engage and entertain young readers.

    The illustrations look promising (:
    I agree with Kimba – this would be a great little story for a new baby especially since it's a board book with just a few words in there. Have you ever heard of the Bob books? It slowly helps you baby/child to read.
