It's silly and fun while still tugging on the heart strings and reminding us that everyone deserves to be needed, and loved. Illustrations are lively and appealing. A perfect tale for dog lovers and for teaching children about the importance of rescuing pets from shelters, rather than buying from pet stores! I love that this book showed a large community coming together to visit and adopt these dogs. It's a good teaching tool to show children that a community working together can make a large impact.

It includes some good vocabulary and concepts to discuss. For example the 2 dogs are silver and slow. You can talk about the fact that their hair is silver because they are aging and that one of the dogs has his leg bandaged making him slower than usual.

Morbid bedtime stories
The good news is, they all find a loving companion and a home by the end of the book. Apr 22, Brooklyn Cribdon Kemp rated it really liked it. This is such a sweet counting story about shelter dogs finding their homes! However, I wasn't fond of the very last page where the final two sentences don't fit the cadence and flow of the rest of the story. It's a doggy counting book! Halfway thru you discover the dogs are actually at the dog pound, waiting to be found by their future owners. Friendly illustrations, cute bone decor on the spine of the book.
Aug 23, Cheryl rated it it was amazing. A woofing good book. Like dogs themselves, so much to explore. Count dogs, learn dog behaviors and best of all, find the perfect dog for you. A good read aloud and one to go back over and over to catch all the pictures. Feb 04, Brittany rated it it was amazing.
