Perfect Picture Book Friday: TWO DOGS ON A TRIKE Plus Giveaway

Happy Pefect Picture Book Friday, dear friends!

Lots of people are happy when Friday comes because it signals the end of the work week for many – although these days, I’m not sure if that is as meaningful as it used to be. However, for me, Friday is a very happy day because I get to share a great new picture book with you! Today’s featured story, which launches in a few days, has already garnered STARRED REVIEWS! And one lucky person will win a copy, thanks to the author, the lovely Gabi Snyder. So please make sure you leave a comment.

two dogs on a trike


Written by Gabi Snyder

Illustrated by Robin Rosenthal

Published by Abrams (May 19, 2020)

Ages: 0-6

Themes: Counting, Dogs, Transportation

Synopsis: From Amazon:

One by one, each dog escapes its yard and joins the adventure in this hilarious counting story. Vehicle-obsessed readers will love seeing all the modes of transportation that the pups use—until the family cat decides to round them all up to go back home.
Gabi Snyder’s charming text and Robin Rosenthal’s delightful illustrations are a surefire combination in this winning picture book.
Starred Reviews:
This fur-raising one-to-10-and-back-again counting book perfectly captures the rollicking, manic joy of dogs off the leash. – Kirkus

A recommended purchase. The rhyming phrases make this title an ideal read-aloud, and the simple counting up and down from 1 to 10 builds early math skills. – School Library Journal


Why I love this book:

  • Cars/trains/planes…kids love them! Dogs and a persnickity cat…kids love them also! The rhyme is so much fun and flows off the tongue easily!
  • Wonderful count up and count down…little ones are learning math and they don’t even know it!
  • Hilarious illustrations…you will LOVE the modernistic dogs – color palette is bold and kid-friendly!

  1. Congratulations, Gabi. Each review I read gets me more excited to read this! Vivian, LOVE the many canine craft ideas! My most unusual ride would probably be an inter-island trip on a freighter when we missed our ferry connection.
