1.0 out of 5 stars More dishonesty from Random House May 3 2003
By LS
Format:Board book
Look at the cover of this Bright and Early Board Book...does it say "Abridged" or "Adapted"? NO, to discover that fact, one has to look carefully at the fine print on the inside of the cover. And even then, what Random House says is "Originally published in a different form as 'Go Dog Go'" instead of a more honest "Abridged and Adapted from 'Go Dog Go'". This is deceptive marketing at its absolute worst. If this were food for the stomach rather than food for the mind, the FDA would long ago have ordered Random House to cease and desist this sort of misleading behavior or face the consequences.
I am old enough to remember the difference between a book labeled "by P.D. Eastman" and a book labeled "by P.D. Eastman (Abridged)." There was a day when publishers felt compelled to be honest about their product, which allowed us consumers to easily make an informed choice about what we wanted to buy.
I for one still want that choice from publishers and urge any and all of you who care about books to not purchase this Random House Bright and Early Board Book, at least until they are a little more honest in their practices.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for every child Nov. 6 2012
Format:Board book
This was a favorite book of mine as a kid. I bought it for my daughter and she loves it just as much. "go, dog, go" was one of the first sequence of words she put together when she was small. There are different versions of this book (we have 2) but the board book is great for small kids!

1.0 out of 5 stars Please buy the real "Go Dog Go" May 16 2002
By A Customer
Format:Board book
No need to repeat what others have said about this book. Simply put: avoid this rewritten, watered-down sham of a book and go out and buy a copy of the real "Go Dog Go" which is one of the greatest children's books of all time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid the Board Book!!! May 11 2001
Format:Board book
Go, Dog, Go! is one of the true classics for very young children. It is also unusually long -- 50+ pages. That clearly posed a problem for the creators of the shortened board version. Their "solution," though, is dreadful. They didn't just shorten the book, they rewrote it from scratch! This little board book has flat, toneless prose, with none of the effortless whimsy of the original.
Treat your baby to the *real* Go, Dog, Go! My 13-month old daughter happily sits through the full version, and enjoys the way it builds up to its big ending. You may end up with a couple of torn pages, but it's an honorable fate for a book to be loved to death.

1.0 out of 5 stars Get the unabridged version! June 20 1999
By A Customer
Format:Board book
I love the original version of Go, Dog. Go! This is not the same thing: my wife bought this board book thinking it would be as delightful as the original, but as soon as you open it you'll realize that the story is completely gone, the characters are gone, the excitement and wonder is gone. All that are left are some pictures and disjointed prose that fail to impress.
I first read this book about 40 years ago; it has made an indelible impression on me. I started reading GDG (the original version) to my son when he was a few months old--he loved it. I tried reading the board version (this edition) to him about the same time--he and I both hated it.
Stick with the original; don't bother with this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Board book is NOT the same as Hardcover Sept. 10 1998
By A Customer
Format:Board book
I, too, remembered "Go Dog. Go!" very fondly. Unfortunately, the Board Book is nowhere near as entertaining.The pictures are selections from the hardcover, with new words. No "Do You Like My Hat?" dialogue. I was SO disappointed! My sons (3 and 9 months) like it - but I immediately bought the "real" book when I discovered this one was lacking.

5.0 out of 5 stars The First Book I Ever Read April 25 2004
Format:Board book
Although my parents frequently tell me I was reading from cereal boxes and newpapers before this, the first time I vividly remember reading a book was sitting in my Aunt's lap and happily stammering through "Go Dog Go." The many colors of dogs and the way they got around intrigued me as a four year old and my (no pun intended) dog eared copy of P.D. Eastman's Suess-like rhymes stayed on my shelf for a long time after I'd grown out of this leavel of learning skill. Get it for your youngsters, it will make them happy to try and follow along.

Format:Board book
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

1.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT "Go, Dog. Go!"
Eastman's "Go, Dog. Go!" is a wonderful book. BUT THIS IS NOT IT! This book is a small board book that has most of the original illustrations and a completely different text. Read more
