Book Release

by Bam Schildkraut

¿Cuantos Perros? How Many Dogs? is a read-out-loud romp through numbers 1-10 with a pack of playful pooches. Simple verses use the English and Spanish words for numbers. The short rhymes literally roll off the tongue (can you say perros?) and children quickly learn to count and woof aloud with each verse. The rhymes and illustrations focus on positive interactions between dogs and people. From the wraparound cover to the last page, the illustrations of the 55 dogs and one cat are vivid, active and humorous. Children will delight in finding the friendly little cat hidden in every illustration as they count their way through the book.
