Join dogs big, little, loud and quiet, in this beautifully illustrated, timeless classic from beloved author P.D. Eastman! Join the big and little dogs at play in this vibrant, action-packed Blue Back Beginner Book from the celebrated author and illustrator P. D. Eastman! Using a 75-word vocabulary and clear illustrations, pre-readers are helpfully introduced to the concepts of number, colour, and opposites. Beginner Books have been designed to appeal directly to children through the use of humour, rhyme and bright pictures that can be 'read' even by the non-reading child. Some Beginner Books are simple stories, others are hilarious nonsense: both types have been designed to give children confidence and make them want to go on reading.
