Book Description

June 12 1966 Beginner Books(R) (Book 20)
Reading goes to the dogs in this timeless Beginner Book edited by Dr. Seuss. From big dogs and little dogs to red, green, and blue dogs, dogs going up and dogs going fast . . . who knew dogs were so busy? And laughter will ensue at the repeated question “Do you like my hat?” Like P. D. Eastman’s classic Are You My Mother? Go, Dog. Go! has been a go-to favorite for over fifty years, leaving audiences of all breeds wagging their tails with delight.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

 "The canine cartoons make an elementary text funny and coherent and still one of the best around."--School Library Journal.

Product Description

From Amazon

Life lessons? Romance? Literary instruction? Go, Dog. Go! offers all this and more, wrapped up in one simply worded, warmly hued package. Using single-syllable words in rhythmic repetition, and introducing colors and prepositions, this Seuss-styled classic has been an early favorite of children since 1961. For those looking for deeper meaning in a beginning reader book, here you'll find nothing less than a microcosm of life. Green dogs, yellow dogs, big dogs, little dogs. Dogs who prefer cars, dogs who favor skis. All represent the diversity a child will find in the world. And the slow-to-bud romance between the cheerfully oblivious yellow dog and the mincing pink poodle explains more succinctly than most self-help books what goes on in many grown-up relationships. Nonetheless, Eastman takes the concept of "primary" to heart, with his simple silly phrases and solidly colored illustrations. Not only will this book inspire peals of laughter in kids, it will also help them make the magical connection between those mysterious black squiggles on the page, and the words they hear and speak. (Ages 4 to 8) --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Feb. 11 2013
By deb
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My son is 28 and has a 16 month old daughter. My son had this book as a youngster and we had so much fun reading it. Ever since my granddaughter was born I would hold her on top of my head and "wear her as my hat" and ask her "Do you like my hat?" so she started putting odd objects on her head and saying "hat?". So I just had to get it for her (and me) and I'm glad I did. It's an oddly delightful little book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book Jan. 27 2003
Format:Hardcover
I have just finished reading the heartwarming novel, Go, Dog. Go! I found it a compelling and disturbing look at the canine psyche. If I may be permitted to quote a passage from the book. "Big Dog." "Little Dog". "A red dog on a ..." Well anyway, I don't want to give away the ending, but I will say that spirals towards on an incredible twist-turn that parallels my own life!

5.0 out of 5 stars What is it about this book? July 25 2010
Format:Hardcover
My son LOVES this book. Since the book is his, this review is his. (or what I think he would say if he could speak full sentances) lol
"I am 3 now and for the past year and a half mom and dad have read this book at least 5 times a week. They hid it from me in the past couple months to give some of the MANY other books I have a chance, and somehow in the past few days they are suckered into reading it again. I heard this book is my cousins fave too. My book was my dads when he was little so it is extra special (and shows how timeless it is). If you don't have this book for your 1-5 year old you should really get it. But I heard negative things about the board book so be sure to get the hard cover."

5.0 out of 5 stars Vocabulary For The Dogs April 21 2004
Format:Hardcover
This was one of my favorites as a child. It became a favorite of my daughter's as well. Now my son is hooked on it.
The book starts simply. "Dog" is the only word on the page. That sets up the theme.
We quickly are taken through comparisons and colors. Black, white, red, blue, yellow, green, in, out, up, down, big, small, stop, go, over and under. Add some simple numbers and the book gains real substance.
But then we have the two plots. First is the "Do you like my hat?" story that runs to the book's conclusion. The other is dogs on the go. They run around, go to sleep, wake up, drive away fast, and finally all congregate at the top of a tree.
Great Eastman illustrations and fun vocabulary will entertain most children

5.0 out of 5 stars Sure Sign of Quality Feb. 18 2004
Format:Hardcover
My father winces whenever the subject of Go, Dog. Go! is brought up. This book wasn't just my favorite, I was obsessed with it. So, of course, Dad read it to me...ABOUT FIFTY THOUSAND TIMES! I think the poor man still has Go, Dog. Go! dreams. For me, Eastman will always live in a place with Seuss and Sendak. Superior children's lit.

5.0 out of 5 stars kids love it Jan. 25 2004
Format:Hardcover
This book is timeless. I loved it as a child and I love it as an adult. The pictures are great for kids. As an adult, I love the pictures as much as my son. The text is simple, but in a style that is enticing to young children, and allows kids to recite the story aloud after a few readings. And for the few adult critics who say the text is not sophisticated enough for them but their kids love it, - gimme a break - it's a CHILDREN' book for crying out loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars My kids *love* this book.. Jan. 25 2004
Format:Hardcover
My first child (who is 5 1/2 now) loved this book. He would have me read the whole thing to him and then he would study the 'dog party' pages for, what seemed like, hours.
Fast forward a few years later, my second boy happen to find GDG in a large stack of books and he loves GCG in the exact same way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Childrens' FUN easy to read classic Dec 23 2003
Format:Hardcover
This book is an oldie but goodie. It brings back fond memories from my own childhood. Unlike other so-called "classics" that show their age with flaws (such as "Pat the Bunny"-- which exemplifies the typical stomach-turning smarmy 40's or 50's household and bland illustrations), this one is fun and shows its age with STYLE and humor ( with 60's-style cars and poodles).
But best of all, this is a great book because CHILDREN love it, and it's a beginner book that they'll start to memorize and read! Despite all of the books we've collected to read to our toddler, she requests this one again and again. The words are simple and easy to learn, and children are drawn to the lovable dogs.
As an adult, dogs are so amazingly appropriate as the main characters. I mean, what other animals "GO" like dogs? Dogs always seem to want to go somewhere or be busy, or join a "dog party!" and they are all different and unique, just like the ones in this book!
