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 the Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book Jan. 27 2003
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 Go, Dog. Go! (This book is great!) Oct. 30 2002
This is one of the most interesting and exciting books that your child will ever read in his/her lifetime! This has been one of the top three favorite books of mine since I was a child. To all of you silly little gooses out there, you better buy this book because it was created just for you. It will really bring out the creative side of your children. It really doesn't have a big moral or lesson or anything. That's what makes it so different and funny. This is a book for learning how to read. Not learning a lesson. It's just really fun to read, and to listen to when someone reads it to you.
"Dog. Big dog, little dog." That's how the story begins. How it ends? Read it and find out! You can either purchase it here online, or go to a store, or what I would do, rent it out from the library. I mean, why would you just go out and buy it, without knowing if you're going to like it? (I know that I'm supposed to try to make you buy it from here but I mean, I wouldn't. So I don't expect you to either.) All I'm here to do is to say how much I love and enjoy this book and think that you would too. I recommend it highly.
So after hearing what I have to say about it, go do something nice for your children and yourself, and go read this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Go Dog Go Oct. 30 2002
By A Customer
This book is a book for younger children who are just learning to read. It is a good book to learn with because it has very easy words to read but it is long so the child can feel that they did a very good job reading a good book. This book is about dogs and how they drive cars and hang out and swim and fish and things like that. This book has very good pictures in it. This book tells where the dogs in the book are and what they're doing. It also says what color the things are that they're wearing and the colors of the things there in or by. It is a good book to learn to read because it has very good action words and descriptive words. It has colors and cars and objects and things like that.
I would rate this book a 3. It is good for very young children to read but it doesn't really have a point to it. I enjoyed it but I just don't think that the book is good for older children. I would suggest this book for people who are just learning to read or for people who like Dr. Suess books.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite children's book Dec 1 2001
My all time favorite children's book. Big Dog. Little Dog. My son's first word was "dog". I loved this book when my teens were little and my little one (currently 6  months) will sit through most of this book (sometimes all) when I read it to her now. It is a great "first reader" as the words are common and the pictures offer help in that when one reads "One big dog going in." and "Two little dogs going out." the picture shows just that. There are red, yellow and green trees, dogs "over the water", dogs "under the house" and lots more word pictures that are fun to read and easy to learn by. The three dogs having a party on a boat at night is just about my favorite line but I still get the most fun when it is night and the dogs are supposed to be asleep and one little one is laying in bed with his eyes wide open. Simply put every child should have this book in their library and reading it to a child should start at a very young age. My highest possible recommendation.

I was well into my 30s before I realized that this was not aDr. Seuss books. Given that it's issued in the same size and binding,I'd always assumed it was written by Seuss. My realization that it was written and illustrated by P.D. Eastman cleared one of my largest childhood confusions: I *loved* Go Dog Do, and merely *liked* The Cat in the Hat.
Years later I realize that Eastman's art is funny, while Seuss's is fantastic, and I prefer the former to the latter. As another reviewer mentioned, you can stare at these dogs for a long, long time. There's an incredible depth to their expressions and postures - especially surprising given the seemingly simple illustrations. (And yes, the insomniac dog who sleeps through the next morning's revile is one of my favorites, too. But so are the dogs having a party on a boat!)
The repetitive narration is similarly hypnotic, and you'll quickly find some of the expressions creeping into your every day dialog.
All in all, my very favorite childhood book, and one of the few that I still re-read a few times a year. END
Was this review helpful to you?
My soon-to-be two year old son Jackson has a prized collection of books, in which the pages of P.D. Eastman's Go,Dog Go! are worn, wrinkled, and stained with fruit juice. In places, they are even torn. This is a good thing. The first time we sat down together in the rocking chair to read it, at least a year ago now, Go, Dog Go! charmed child and mother alike from beginning to end. I knew then that this book, with its simplicity and original, appealing characters, would join the ranks of the constantly-read, which reside apart from the rest in his library. These select few sit next to the lamp on his nightstand; you cannot keep them on the bookshelf, so why bother to try? From the different sizes, colors, shapes and locations of the dogs, to the reappearing and increasingly complex matter of the hat, Go, Dog Go! delights Jackson each and every time. It is mandatory bedtime reading (according to him). It goes with us in the car to the sitter's house, the doctor's office, and on road trips. Like Dr. Seuss and Beatrix Potter, Eastman possesses the creative ability to stimulate, entrance, and comfort even the youngest of readers with colorful language, rhyme, and winsome animals all children can relate to. Go, Dog Go! is educational, medicinal, and functional dressed up as just plain fun, and that, perhaps, is its most worthy quality of all.
